Does anyone have tips on getting rid of hair algae? I use RO/DI water and my phosphate's read zero on API test kit and nitrates are around 10. I do weekly water changes and run protein skimmer 24/7.

Chances are it's a lighting and a Silicate issue...What substrate did you use. You should consider adding a UV sterilizer to your list :)
