I have a 125gal planted aquarium. I have 384 watt lighting and co2. I have recently noticed hair like algae growing on my Amazon swords, and has now spread to other plants in my tank. What can I do? Is there an algae eating fish or maybe or other device that can help me rid this out of my tank?

The algae you describe are hard to exterminate and few fishes eat them. You can try siamese algea eaters as these are among the few fish who (usually) eat them.
The alternatives are to try and manually remove all you se or use an anti algae chemical.
