Feel like I'm always posting tons of questions.. but still learning:)

Anyways... I have a green bubble algae problem.. which is getting worse ... and i have 3 majanos that I can see. As for the bubble algae it reared it's ugly head when i bought a piece of live rock with mushroom on it...a couple weeks ago I did the tweezer work on them. However, tonight I noticed i have tons of green bubbles appearing on one rather large piece of live rock and a few on some small. As for both issues ( majano and bubble) can i pull the rock out and tweeze and scrape? Or do i need to keep the rock under water? I already bought 3 emerald crabs who don't seem to be interested in the bubble algae so that method didn't work. Just want to do something before both these take over.. and the green bubble algae has a very nice headstart.

No need to submerge the rock unless it is going to be out of the tank for hours. I'd remove and scrape, then swish the rock in a bucket of saltwater to remove any loose pieces before placing it back into the tank.
