Could anyone please identify this algae? This is a month old setup and I am struggling with this algae. The is a 16 gallon tank. The lights are set for 5 hours and I have pressurized co2 in the tank. The fish are doing well. Any help in this regard will be really appreciated. Thank you.

Diatom algae. Typical in new setups. Yours is a lot lol. This algae usually appears in the presence of an ammonia cycle happening. I would take an old clean toothbrush and twist it up off the hairgrass so it can get some light. Otherwise it will go away when the cycle is finished balancing.
