Mark,
I have had good luck with Fluconazole for my hair algae problems in the past.  Lazy's Coral House carries it or you can order it online here:

Hope this helps.

You need to test your nitrate and phosphates.  More then likely one or both are high causing the issue.  Along with what Kelly mentioned you will need to get those lowered and under control.
