Matt, with almost 99.9% confidence it's BGA/Cyano in the genus Oscillitoria.
Search "blackout and or BGA/Cyano". Find the more recent post of the cure.
You'll need to add more KNO3 and do a 3 day blackout to kill what's there.
In the future, pay more attention to adding enough KNO3, the plants need
much more than algae and this BGA needs extremely little. So adding it will
favor the plants, not the BGA.

The krib and other sites(the Dallas Forth Worth group I believe have some
pics as do many other plant sites) have pics.

Typically, a detailed description is enough for me to know what it is to
genus level.
