How big is your tank if it's big enough and you are planning on having a tang of any sort it will soon munch it

Can you get a better picture as I'm struggling to see it may be I'm viewing on my phone though.

If you want to get it out best thing to do is on a waterchange get a tooth brush and scrub the rock as you have the syphon pipe above it will then suck it out.

Or if you like the look of it leave it be for minute see how it grows may look really natural

Yea The hair algae was a bit out of control but I've removed as much as I can and bought a couple more crabs and I went from keeping my tank light on from 12+ hours to only 8-10 hours so it's actually been pretty under control for about a month.
And cayno?

Even hair algae is a macro algae, just one that can be invasive and an issue in our displays.
That said, photo period and a clean up crew will help with the algae but you will still need to address the parameters in the system or it won't ever resolve itself.
