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.

Great thanks for helping me id this algae. Now I just have to wait for my lfs to get some Florida flag fish which should be this week.
ugghhh.... I was hoping not to hear the word staghorn algae. I thought that is what it was originally, but was in denial with myself.
You mentioned "Tom Bars estimative index" but where can I find out more about that. And when you say add 4 oz of h2o2 slowly, what is your definition of slowly. And thanks for the help.
