From experience...Tweezers and a whole lot of time to kill on a Fri night. Bursting the bubble is *thought* to help spread it though I have never read any proof. You are bound to pop some and from experience, don't sweat it. My tank registers (Whith multiple test kits) 0 trates/po4 but the bubble algea still grows, thoug much slower. If you don't have a skimmer, get one, if you have one, check to make sure its clean and producing skimmate. I promise you will drive yourself insane trying to figure out whats feeding it and its better time spent removing it. Again, some good tweezers and a lot of time to kill.
The issue with a statement like "water tests are good..so please don't ask for them." is that 'good' in this hobby is subjective. If you have them, post them, it only helps you..
