I'd trim off the leaves where it is very bad. Spot treating with excel, glut, or h2o2 via a syringe is a good idea, just make sure you turn your filter/powerhead a off for ~20 min so there's time for the magic to happen. Wait a day and you should start to see it dying, and keep repeating as necessary. You can spot treat different areas of the tank on different days and I try to vacuum up any dead algae I see lying around too.
Can you tell us more about your tank? Parameters, lights, photoperiod, PWC
amount and schedule, ferts, co2
/glut, natural sunlight, etc. This way we can help eliminate what's causing the algae in the first place.
