That is about as bad an infestation as I have ever seen! It sounds like Rhizoclonium, all right. Try manually removing as much as you can with the toothbrush. Then you might try some rosy barbs, which I have heard eat it. Maybe overdosing with excel will kill it, or, perhaps local applications of hydrogen peroxide. I am not an expert on removing hair algae it with treatments or things that eat it. I prefer to keep it out in the first place by bleach-treating all new plants. If I do get an infestation, I remove plants to a new tank by bleach-treating them and then sterilize the old tank with a prolonged bleach treatment.
Can I have your permission to use one of your pictures in the AlgaeFinder?
