Hair algae. A sign of excess nutrients in the water column. Large water changes with ro/di water. There are also links to articles on this topic in my signature.

most of that will blow off with a turkey baster one of my favorite tools .
best time to do this is during water changes . large water changes will help remove excess nutrients .
