Well that rules out the Red Sea Sailfin Tang...I guess

How about needle nose pliers??

I had a small Lopezi tang in my last 20 but I doubt you can find one small enough for a ten! Maybe hand removal would be your best bet.

Check your pH, alk, and calcium...I get bubble algae here and there and eventually it gets overgrown with coralline and dies off. My emerald crab (RIP) never touched the stuff.

Yeah, my emeralds thumb their nose at it too. Maybe I'm not keeping them hungry enough.
