its red but looks like minature cheato algae and is over taking my zoo covered rock. what will eat it off? I tryed pulling it off but it's pretty strong and small enough where it is tough to get fingers on it. Looks like the scrubbing side of a soft scrub sponge but it's red. Sorry no pics.....

Thanks for any advice you can give.

some of these algaes are reef top algae and need very little phosphates to survive. a lot like the SPS they are around. these can be very difficult to remove. :( how big is the tank? rabbitfish are pretty good at eating these funky algaes, that is if the one you get is reading the same book you are about what they like to eat.
