Caulerpa Racemosa is hard to eradicate as it anchors deep inside the rock , basically the only way to remove it is to replace the rocks, some like the look of it but it takes over if not controlled ,
soaking in peroxide don't work , cooking in hot sun don't work it will kill what is on the rock surface but will return as it has rooted deep within the rock ,
it is one of the hardest macro's to get rid of

Fish are like lifesavers
They come in different colors

You will need to target small spots for a couple days to achieve success.
But it does work.
I hit spot by spot over 1 1/2 months!
Killed it all in my 75g.
The calurpae you have is racmosa.

If your just dealing with hair algae, get your phosphates down to .05 or below.
