Green hair algea on coral....

I forgot the name of my coral but it has green algea attached to it and don't know how to remove it. I was transfering it to a new tank and wanted to know how to remove it before it gets a new home. Any suggestions would be great. thanks

pull off what you can by hand scrub the rest off with a tooth brush and then since youa re moving to new tank make it the first piece with all the crabs they'll clean it

horseshoe crabs clean it up and keep it clean, if you're interested in that... they're fun to watch. But you'd need plenty of sand for them to sift and burrow in.
