Algae ID

Since summer started, this algae has gone crazy in my tank. Does anyone have any idea what kind it is? Also there is a fine green algae that is also growing on some of the leaves on my red ludwiga and I am not sure what it is either. The tank has been set up since November and I have never had any problems like this before. Also, would Florida Flag Fish help exterminate this algae? Thanks for any help.

H2O2 is not going to solve the issue.

It's not BBA either.

It's a mix of diatoms and Oedogonium and poerhaps a few others.
Correct your CO2 and other nutrients, this stuff goes away easily if you do that.
