Default Algae - Help me

Its been 3 weeks since I setup this tank. But Algae is just growing everywhere... on the driftwood, plants, tank and the substrate. Not sure on what type of algae it is and how to control it. Its all over my x-mas moss and its frustrating that I need to deal with this within 3 weeks of starting this hobby. Please help.

Tank Size: 90 x 36 x 50 cm
Light: 4x39w T5 HO. 8 to 9 hours daily.
CO2 : Pressurized. 1 bubble / second. 8 hours (same as light but 30 mins before)
Fertilizer: Adding 25 ml of JBL Ferropol on alternate days.
