Hair algae with a buzz cut

Most if not all of the plants in my tank are covered with a pelt of very
fine, straight algae, about 1/4 inch long or less. Flagfish (Jordanella
floridae) and otos don't seem interested in it. Any ideas about what kind of
algae it is, what might be deficient to allow it to grow, and how to get rid
of it?

Tank is 72 gallons, 220W, CO2 supplemented, pH=6.8, GH=KH=4.5. Nitrates
5-10ppm, K added to about 15ppm, KH2PO4 about 1 BB-sized amount added
weekly. 2ml Flourish and Flourish iron added daily.
