you can get things that eat hair algea. I know a sea hare eats it, and i though emeralds ate it but i guess not.

It looks like a limpet to me. I have probably two dozen in my tank. They've done nothing but good so far. Great algea eaters as far as I can tell. The largest ones I have are about 3/4 in long. HTH
