What is this and how do i get rid of it?

All of the old growth on all of my large leaf plants have this algae. In 125G discus tank, nitrates at 5-10, ammo/rites 0. Co2 @ 2 bubbles per second adding flourish regular, brightwell iron and potassium each 2x a week.

I have 3x SAE's, 10 or so Ottocinclus, 4x decent size Bushynose, what is it and what do i need to do to get rid of it?

Xirxes,

I've got some algae that looks almost identical to this on some of the older growth of my glossostigma. cleanup crew wont touch it, or hasn't made a noticeable dent in it. I also use excel, pressurized CO2 (2-3 bubbles/sec) macros and micros every other day, weekly 30% WC, 20H.
