Algae issues.... Again

So I finally got rid of the cyano and now I'm getting this weird bubble algae. I just ordered the remora pro with the mag pump and it should be here early next week. Will that help with my issue.

If its over a 10g get an emerald crab,they eat bubble and some other types of algea also leave the lights on for slightly less time every day like 10 mins less than u usually do and leave it that way and feed SLIGHTLY less and wen u add 'em all up it isnt major differences to you but it will take care of your problem plus emerald crabs look cool

In the pic for me it looks like red algae. And that the algae is produceing air. Does not look like bubble algae to me. But I could be wrong.

bubble algae is green and about the size of a small pearl and hard. I agree it looks like air bubble from red algae. but if it is bubble algae get an emerald crab they will take care of it.

I had a yellow tang that ate bubble algae. He couldn't get enough of it.
