I have some redish algae on the glass of my aquarium, that is very difficult to remove. I'm wondering what this algae might be and how i might remove it.

Also want to know what causes it so I can cut back. I was thinking too much iron?

tank is high light w/ ferts. So I can cut back on micro nutrients if that is the case.

Could be too much iron, generally though to my knowledge, red or brown algae is usually caused by too much dissolved phosphates and or nitrates. Algae can take many colors, knowing the general type of algae is helpful when trying to treat it, it beard, Bush or hair, spotted etc.
