What kinds of algae are these & how do I rid myself of them? One is growing directly on the substrate, the other is filament like and is growing on the plants (as you can see)

Tank Specs:
  • 10 gal.
  • Originally 40w, just upgraded to 80
  • ADA Aquasoil, rather newly filled (5 days ago)
  • Been dosing some micro 1/16 a teaspoon every 3-4 days and about 1 ml every 3-4 days of NPK mix
  • PH Approx 6.5 (maybe lower, but don't have any fish, etc); KH Approx 2-3
  • Have done 2 water changes since flooding 5-6 days ago
  • Only plant currently is HC
  • Dosing 2 ML Excel daily

Aren't diatoms the product of silicate? Im not aware of any loose silicate within my tank, so I dont know.
One is Brown and thread like, the other is auburn and fuzzy.
There is a better picture of the thread algae in a second thread I posted "Algae Help!"
