OT eeeevil weed *PIC*

hi there
i was wondering whether anyone could give me any information/ point me to any helpful websites to help me beat an evil weed growing in my aquarium. it started growing shortly after feeding my loaches a slice of courgette. it anchors itself to leaves, bamboo, bogwood, anything (ruining the leaves in the process), but unlike normal algae its not squishy- when i take a leaf out, the algae comes with it and it's coarse to the touch. normal algae-away stuff doesnt work, so i was just wondering whther anyone had any suggestions? apologies for the bad photos- i only have a camera phone, but you can still see the stuff hanging on to the leaf and bamboo!
