Caulerpa growing in between zoos

Some small rocks I received that had small buds of zooanthids, are doing well, however, I now have what looks like caulerpa macro algae growing in between individual zoos.

My first thought was a yellow tang would eat it all. But my tank is only a 55g and too small I think.

Any suggestions. Cutting it out worked for only a few days, it grows too fast.

If you don't get anything to eat it, I guess all you can really do is keep pulling it out. Good luck and try not to let it spread to other areas.
