Green algea on rock

I have let my tank get to the point that green hairy algea is growing on my luve rock i have cleaned all the glass.
What is the best way of gettin rid of it, take rock out and just scrub it off wit a toothbrush, or get a blenny or just get rid and get new ones????

Scrub it with an old toothbrush in old tank water, rinse in new salt water then back into the tank

Yep and be prepared to do it more than once. You'll prolly do it at least twice a month for about 3 months if it's bad enough.
