What kind of algae is this? Also HELP!!

Does anyone know what kind of algae this is? I have been battling this algae since October 2019. It started when tank maintenance got lax due to prepping the house for a house warming party. I went through after 3 weeks of no water change and cleaned everything (glass, wood, rocks, plants). Then around December the algae had returned with some BBA as well. I cut lights down to 1 hour a day for feeding only. I did this for almost 1 1/2 months until algae was dead. Then I ordered new plants and gradually moved my light time up over a few weeks. Now the algae is back in full swing. Any help would be appreciated!
