Algae on live rock!

Hello fellow fish owners, it seems that my tank has had a bit of an algae bloom and I'm not sure what type it is, or how to get rid of it. Any input would really help me out. Thanks in advance.

That is a lot going on there. Looks like hair algae and some cyano mixed in. Nutrients in the water column. Large water changes with ro/di water and manual removal. It will keep coming back until the nutrients in the water column are addressed.

Thanks for the reply! We have the RoDi running. How would I go about doing a manual removal?

Thanks again!!
