If this is a very thin green strand with what looks like round things in it every few inches...like every 2-3 inches...not hair algae. If it's hair algae it comes apart when you try to pull on it. But if that other plant, it is hard to break the strand. Only heard the name of it once, but pulling it out manually is the only solution I know of and shold be done ASAP as it will take over and be next to impossible to remove without damage to plants after it does.

Sounds similar to what I had. If it's same, I Added a lot of ghost shrimp and they ate all of it. They are cheap so even if don't work, not like your out a lot of money.
