Algae ID and removal advice in planted tank.

Hi I have been fighting this algae for some time and have looked into solutions for it recently after getting tired of just trying to remove it. I know that I have black beard algae and some other algae I cant ID. I have read online that flourish helps kill bba, and have been doing once a day for about a week now and have not noticed any dieing off. Both algae are a problem and would like advice for removal and/or treatment for it. Here is a picture or two to hopefully help ID. Thanks for any help in advance. If you need more pictures or info let me know.

Like a string algae?

I can see the BBA in last picture. I’ve found glut helps but can take a month (others report more immediate success). Reducing lighting and cutting out any sunlight can also help.
