Algae Question

Hi, I'm curious about this algae that has started to grow this past week. It looks like a plant and just wondering if this is good for keeping down nitrates? Fish dont appear to be eating it.

Hair algae. Feeding off excess nutrients in the water column. Will require manual removal during weekly water changes. Can also check out the articles about algae issues in our articles section.
