What kind of invasive algae is this

I've been battling this forever. Came after I had a dino breakout. Tried blackouts, low/zero nutrients, deceased light period, increasing cuc, dosing (dino x, chemiclean, azithromycin) scrubbing rock. Nothing works. Can someone please give me a solution I've been teetering back and forth of shutting down. As you can see from the looks of it and I've had enough.

Please turn the blue lights off or way..way down and take the pics again...All that blue light just ruins proper color rendition which is important in id pics...

Fairly normal green algae. Get a number of Banded Trochus Snails and Scarlet Reef Hermit Crabs and they will take care of them.

Implement an algae turf scrubber and don't look back. It will remove the nutrients that cause this.

That IMO is certainly not regular green hair algae..
It may be a "golden algae" like something from the Chromista kingdom.
May be Calothrix or Lyngbya bacteria
