    You need to post more info such as tank size, light wattage, CO2 lever, fertilizer dosing, filter, some photo also help.

    I assume it is black beard algae, which normally due to unstable CO2 and water circulation

    are you injecting CO2? how many watt is your light?

    Shortcut is spot treatment with seachem excel but I'm worry about your shrimps. Also it will comeback again unless you solve the issue.
