You can inject them with vinegar or Aptasia-X. If you do this do small sections at a time and not the entire tank.

You may need more than one emerald crab (I find the smooth shell females do a better job than the males).

Rabbit fish have been known to eat bubble algae as well.

Guys,

My tank is being over ran with red bubble algae.

What are the causes and how do I get rid of it?

Nitrates - 5
Phosphates - .02

I’ve tried manual removal but they come back more fierce than before and also have an emerald crab that doesn’t touch the red.

I’ve heard horror stories of having to do a complete tear down and start all over which isn’t something I want to do.
