To do water changes i just use some transparent hose. The come off real easy, a baster would probably work

I actually have been picking them (carefully so not o pop them) off of rock. My lfs pretty much told me you will never fully eradicate it.

Not always; there are no guarantees.

I had 3 or 4 bubbles of red bubble algae on my zoa rock a few months back. I dipped the rock in a coral dip and brushed them off then dipped them in a bowl of saltwater and swirled the water around as a rinse. It never came back. Dunno if its the best way but it worked for me!
