Entromorpha, staghorn. Might be something else in there.

 Cut and trim it all off. Your tank likely had something recently done to
upset it, generally a massive replanting, filter issue, pulling junk up from
the substrate w/o a water change after etc. Poor CO2/nutrients can also make
it appear. Nothing eats it(SAE's, Shrimps, snails, barbs will pick at it but
also pull up furry looking plants). Best is to trim it, do a water change,
make overall conditions good(add nutrients to decent target levels). It
hangs on for a little while but will go away if you keep after things.
