This looks like the algae that appeared in one of my tanks when the DIY
yeast bottle sprung a leak that I didn't find for a few weeks.

After studying the pictures for a while I think that I'd battle this stuff
by removing as much as I can, trying to promote more vigorous growth
from the plants, waiting and trying to keep things otherwise stable.  

I think some of the plants look a little nutrient starved, so some
additional fertilizer might be called for.  My preference would be to
fertilize the substrate (jobes spikes for NPK and iron gluconate tablets
for Fe). I think that Ken Neill was using TMG, so in his case it might
work to increase the TMG dosage and add some additional nitrate.  I don't
use TMG, does anyone who *does* use TMG want to add something?
