Get rid of bad algae?

What is the best way to get rid of cotton candy algae? I heard some types of nudibranch, or turbo snail but I'm not sure. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Urchins, sea hares, large turbos, emerald crabs and most hermit crabs. You can remove with your hands, too by scraping your thumb on the surface it is attached to.

Turbo Snails

I agree with boardsurfer only I like turbo snails. They do not mess around with other things like coral. The snails like algae and it does not apparently make any difference what kind
