How Do I Get Rid Of Green Hair Algae?

I have a 10 gallon with bryopsis algae in the beginning and I was told to add magnesium to kill it and it worked. I also started adding GFO to remove phosphate in my tank. I also tested my water it has low nitrite.
Now my tank have green hair algae on rocks and glass. Should I just restart the tank? what should i do? the magnesium doesnt seem to work on green hair algae.

Even byrpopsis is hair algae. The issue is nutrients in the water column. You will need to do large water changes with ro/di water on top of your weekly 10% water changes. Manually remove the algae during your water changes and you will begin to make a dent in the issue.
