Macro algae nuisance

This macro found its way to my DT. I've been trying to remove it myself but I never get it all. It's popping up in other places and it's becoming annoying. Wondering of anything eats it or theres another way to get rid of it.

Looks like Caulerpa, large grape. If your tank is big enough, I think many different Tangs would eat it. I believe Emerald crabs will eat it too .
It can get out of control if left unchecked, so if Emeralds and Tangs won't work, I'd keep trying to remove it manually.
