Dip the coral using hydrogren peroxide. That'll wipe em out, if those are planaria.

You could just suck them off with a hose while doing a water change, instead of putting the coral through any extra stress. These are not a big deal.

manual removal would be the way I would choose. Also, keep the nutrient levels down by going easy on feedings and upping water changes.

Manual removal seems nigh on impossible without trashing my currect rockscape!

You mean taking your 2 fingers and plucking off the algae from time to time will make your rocks topple over?

I've done bits, some of that algae is on strong! I've made some of my own rocks so that may be part of the problem

Algae overgrowth is a nutrient issue. Cut back on feeding and up your nutrient export and the growth should slow/stop over time.
