hair algae problem

Recently I've been having problems with hair algae in both of my established planted tanks, is there anything that will eat hair algae and not eat my plants or anything I can do to get rid of the algae??

u can easily remove hair algae without damaging the plants. Algone works well. If u dont want to add products, then try giving less food, add more plants and increase the growth of the plants so they outcompete the algae with co2.
Personally i like the green algae that grows on the rocks.
