What kind of algae is this?

There's also some more whitish strands on the tip of the vals

It looks like Staghorn

How long do you leave the lights on daily?
What lights do you have?
What size tank is it?
What ferts do you use?
Do you use any carbon source?

You have a powerful light fixture without the balance of fertilizers or co2. I would highly recommend that you look into look into both of those. Also, I would decrease the photoperiod down to no more than 8 hours.
