This stuff just started growing out of no where, I have no idea where it came from. It all of a sudden showed up and started growing like crazy, I have already tried manual removal but it did little help. I think it’s a type of hair or string algae. Any idea on a sure fire way to get rid of it?

Looks like hair algae to me, it could be caused by leaving your lights on for too long or your tank being near a window. See if you can do a blackout for a few days, that might help.

3 days of darkness should be fine.
