Green hair algae or green fuzz algae

Hey everyone, so recently I planted a tissue culture that was in poor condition and had a bad green hair algae bloom. I noticed most the algae was on the leaves closest to the light so I decided to get some floating plants decrease the photo period from 7 to 6 hours because of how bright my light is. My question is will my plants that have the green fuzz algae recover or should I bite the bullet and trim them?
