Green hair algae ?

I'm not sure what this is? I've been battling it for a few weeks. I take it out Manuel and I've also been doing weekly water changes. Does any have any ideas or answers to nip this in the butt. Thank youClick image for larger version

What are the parameters in the tank? Though it is hard to see, it looks more like a web that is being shot out to filter feed than algae. That said, you can see some nuisance algae in the tank.

If u can zoom In, I agree it's not that bad now but it gets long and stringy with a air bubble at the end.

Aim for between 8-10 hour photoperiod. Try and siphon out the gunk. You still have yet to report your parameters.

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
That looks more like dinoflagellates.

Mr x , now that u mentioned that it does look at it! My ph is a little low so maybe hopefully if I raise my PH they will go away! I'm still up for ideas.
