Red Hair Outbreak

I am having a real issue with red hair. It's vine like fluffy and growing like grass all over this one red rock my RBT lives in
Help me get rid of it before it attacks the other rocks
Images are available if needed in case it is something other than an algae in someone's opinion
Thanks in advance

Covered in several current posts. Overfeeding, too much light time, low flow and poor or no protein skimming are usual causes.
