With a little thought, you can vacuum them to additional areas for isolation/removal. If the cornerstone is easy to move, you can temporarily remove it, remove it by hand or use a toothbrush to prevent the old water from entering the tank again. I don't have any experience in dealing with bubble algae, but it may be possible.When doing this, try to avoid spores scattered in the tank

Or get the picture of the animal, it is said that this crab will eat bubble algae (forgive me for the name of this crab)

Also, I don't know if N/P helps it grow. But most of its existence seems to be related to higher N/P? (I don't know)

It can be really difficult to get rid of them as they do also grow in a nutrient poor environment. One option which has worked for me was a Naso lituratus but the tank must be big enough to keep this fish.

You can also use vibrant. It is effective.

Hallo Jacky, basically they con easy be removed manually but they do grow back very quick so it is really difficult to get them under control by removing them manually if more are in the system already.

Indeed, manually deleting them is the fastest way, thanks to G.Alexander

I put 7 large crabs and they have definitely made an impact however there is still patches that the crabs just don’t have the strength to remove. Considering vibrant but worried about the other effects it will have on my system.

As long as you only use it once every 2 weeks its totally harmless. People have killed off their sps dosing twice a week with it.

I take it you have a zeovit tank then? What all do you dose zeo wise? Did you not do the recommended dosage for vibrant? I have a mixed reef with lots of sps and a clam
