I had similar probs in one of my tanks recently. Blue/green algae and hair algae. Tank was cycled for a year. I got a phosphate tesdt kit from Amazon for 12.50. I thought I had a phosphate problem, well I did, but it was because I had almost no phosphates in Tank! Balance was way off. I just manually removed most of the algae and did big water change, adjusted my ferts and viola! No more algae. Its just a matter of balancing act, get a test kit to see where you sit, it's worth it imo anyway.
