Hair Algae

I have a very healthy tank since I set up a UV Sterilizer... But now I have
a growth of black-hair-looking algae on the leaves of some plants. I am
trying to remove the infected leaves, but can't seem to get it all.

I've seen some posts that indicate that high phosphate levels can be a
contributing factor.

ques 1) What else .. besides phosphate... could be causing the growth?

ques 2) If I measure the phosphate and find it high, how do I LOWER the
level of phosphate?

Thanks in advance... Stephen
