Looks like hair algae to me, something I'm always battling with in my 29 gal. For me it explodes when there's too much light and I'm putting too much food in the tank. To keep it in check, I reduced the light timer to just 5 hrs a day, and I manually remove it when it starts to get to be too much.

You know what’s strange is that it all came from the banana plant that went bad it was turning black Candi said there’s a chance it might come back so after about week or so I notice a ton of the algae growing out of the plant no where else so I took it out while doing so the algae just floated everywhere in the tank clinging to everything now I’m playing catch up
