    Looks like green hair algae, this one is very difficult to remove. Try to remove as much as possible by hand. There is a trick using a wooden cocktail stick and screw the algae on it. Insert lots of amano shrimps and check all parameters.

    for manual removal I like to use a toothbrush and twist it.

    the usual algae culprits could be blamed...too much light, unstable or insufficient CO2, nutrient deficiencies, flow. Those are the parameters to check.
