A toothbrush. The bristles are fine enough that the algae gets trapped in them and can be removed instead of spreading the algae further... You will need to rinse the brush several times during the process. Remember, the nutrient is not removed unless the algae is as well. If you simpley scrub the rock without removing the algae, the nutrient remains.

Cheers
Steve
