I'm in bubble algae hell

I need a way to rid my tank of the bubble algae. Any pointers? I bought an emerald mithrax crab, but he seems to hate the bubble algae as much as I.

I had bad bubble algae when I first started. The emerald crab I got did as much as he could to AVOID the stuff. I have syphoned it out with pumps of and a tooth brush. Ultimatly I took every rock out of my tank and scrubed them in one bucket and dipping them in 2 seperate buckets of clean water to get all the spores off. I haven't seen any in 8 months+.

you can try using a 5/8" id hose when doing a water change to pop and siphon them out. it worked well for me.

Some people report having success with Scribbled Rabbitfish (Siganus doliatus) if you have the room.
