Need help identifying this Algae

Hey guys,
I was needing some help identifying this algae, it seems to only be growing on the drift wood and the filter mesh. I have a feeling its BGA and I'm looking to do a blackout treatment but I just wanted a second opinion. Cheers

Looks like quite a thick staghorn algae to me.

Try cleaning out the filter and changing water more frequently. Make sure the plants are well fed and growing well. Remove dying or decaying leaves and increase surface agitation.
