Removing algae from in between corals

Recently Iíve been able to handle the algae in my nano reef except for areas that are hard for me to manually remove the algae from. Getting in between corals is difficult so should I attempt manual removal or add something that can get in between crevices and coral? If so what can I add? My turbo snails bulldoze everything so they donít do much for getting into small spaces. Btw itís generic gha.

Manually remove what you can without causing issue to your coral. Your standard clean up crew should take care of the rest, but if it is something that is getting out of control do some larger than average water changes with ro/di water. Removal of the nutrients they are feeding on will get rid of the issue over time.
