Please help! Crystalline algae on glass

Just got back from vacation and found that well-loved crystalline algae growing on my glass. While I know it is beneficial, there is already an abundance on my rocks as well as the back wall. Does anyone have a good trick to get it off? I used my algae sponge but the crystalline is very strong and my new sponge won't remove it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!

You'll need a razor scraper to get it off. If its a glass tank anyway.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
