That is some serious hair algae. Try cutting back the amount of light the tank gets per day by a few hours, and feed the fish only once a day, and in smaller amounts. It's best to sit by the tank and put in small amounts of food, then once the fish have eaten that, add a little more. Once the feeding frenzy dies down and the fish show less interest in the food, stop. That way there's not a ton of extra food putting nutrients into the water for the algae to feed on. Hope this helps!
