Brown Hair Algae?

I have a recent outbreak of this stuff on my newly added LR mainly, but starting to spread.

Nitrates are 5-10
Phosphate is <.5

I just battles cyano and lessened my light schedule. Also, started noticing after a PWC on Sunday. Tested change water, RO, and no nitrate or phosphate.

First off, what is this stuff? Second, how do I terminate it!?
