Green Bubble Algea


Does anyone have recommendations on how to get rid of green bubble algea? I've got a few colonies popping up in my tank, I can tell they're starting to spread.

I've heard that Emerald Crabs enjoy it. Other than that ... you have to take the rock out of the tank and remove it by twisting. Don't do it in the tank because if it bursts the spores will spread and you'll have more!

Good Luck

Yes they will take care of the problem even though I dont reccomend buying livestock as a bandaid to the problem. Best thing to do is find out what is causing the problem. But yes they do eat bubble algea. Mine did anyway

Emeralds will eat it. You can also try pulling it out with a siphon.
