Bubble Algae removal question

After purchasing a 'must have' coral I've been plagued with bubble algae in my smaller tank. I want to move a piece of liverock from this tank into my larger tank and I don't (repeat don't) want to bring it into the other tank.

How can I clean off the piece of lr without knocking out everything on the rock?

This piece of rock is absolutely cool....it has a really neat little 'tripod' area on it that would be an excellent home for my huge crocea clam that I want to move into the other tank.

TIA!

Thanks!!! After reading that article I'm ready to sharpen up the screwdriver. I didn't even think that my urchins would touch that stuff but I was wrong (according to the article). So I think I'll yank the rock out and poke out the rock around the bubble algae...do a good rinse and put it in my larger tank. Even if I do get a couple of 'bubbles' I'm not as worried now that I know my urchins will take care of them. Thanks again Mike!

No problem. It`s the least I could do for that nice looking tank you have.

Gosh...I think it would be perfect if I had a nice purple lobo in it (I'm not being too obvious am I??)
