Hairy Potter

Well, i couldn't resist, but the problem is actually hairy glass. I have this problem in all three of my planted tanks, which all have different light levels and nutrient levels and stocking levels - both of fish and plants. The algae is a very short (1/4") bright green algae which grows very quickly on the glass - primarily on the front glass - of the tanks. It returns in 3-4 days after a water change/scrub. it does not grow on the gravel. It may grow on the plants - it would be hard to tell. Almost looks like hydra, but without the tentacles. Reguires a little pressure to scrub off. Annoying! Any ideas?
