People say Emerald crabs. I had a spot of it, and my emerald ignored it.

Emerald Crabs may eat it, fish won't touch it.. Your best bet is to try and siphin it out. Try not to break the bubbles, may spread it.

I got some on my LR, it never spread before I removed it (and that was after the emerald ignored it for a month). But as long as you do it carefuly (don't pop the bubble unless you siphon it all out), you should be set.

I believe the emerald only eats the valonia bubble algae when it first starts to grow. Therefore, you have to remove the larger bubbles and then as new ones develop, the emeralds can get them.
