Bryopsis, I don't think that is culerpa. Feather culerpa still has runners and grape like structures on it. I don't see any of that in the pic.

Bryopsis is very difficult to get rid of. IF it is on a single rock yank it out of the tank now. You do not want to try and pull it out in the tank it spreads like wild fire.

Yeah the solution to killing this off is Kent Marine Mag Tech-B I believe there is some thing in it if you dose a high enough amount it kills off the Bryopsis...

I would be concerned what that may do to the rest of your system though. Use caution is all I'm saying.

I'm with Ziggy on this one. Pull the rock if that's all that's affected.
