Help with algae identification

I could use some assistance id'ing some olive colored filmy/filamentous algae. I've included a photo of the whole tank and a close up, but the photos aren't the best.

The tank is a 40 gal that has been set up for about a month (biofiltartion media transferred from an establ;ished tank) with black flourite sand, some root tabs, and light doses of Flourish Comprehensive. Lighting is two Finnex Planted Plus units which are on about 10 -12 hours day. 60 cardinal tetras fed well but carefully. Temp 80-82 degrees.

The plants are growing well except for valisneria which isn't doing much.
