Gaarrrhg.   Thought so.   Thx.   

It's the only one I can see (so far).  I will pull the rock, scrape 'em off and hope.

yeah thats bubble algae alright, look to the right of that and it looks like you have more! I would fill a bucket half full of salt water with a ton of hydrogen peroxide and another large enough to submerge that rock and some Coral RX, pull the rock get a good flash light and a razor blade ensure you remove everything, dip it into the bucket with peroxide and let it sit for about 15 min, then move to the bucket with the coral RX dip and let it sit for another 10 min before moving back to the tank. That stuff sucks.

I plucked the original piece from the 12/25 photo off that day, and sure enough another popped up yesterday.   I decided to take the advice above and just finished a Hydrogen peroxide dip (1/4 OTC hydrogen peroxide 3% :  3/4 Freshly mixed saltwater) for 90 seconds and then rinsed with more saltwater and put back in the DT.   

The zoas are not happy but we'll see how they do - it's next best thing to try vs losing that whole rock/colony.

      In need of some macro algae as I am starting up some new tanks with refugiums. Anybody have some they can give me? Would love any type (especially the more brightly colored ones though). Anything from chaeto to the purples, reds, and bright greens.

      I have some green algae forming in mats on top of my sand.  I don't have anything sand sifting right now... I can clean my tank and syphon the sand and the stuff will come back in a day or two.  I run Rowa phosphate removal in a reactor.  

      My question is... How bad would it be if I just went in daily and mixed up the sand to try and bury the algae so it can die off without light. The stuff does float up when it can be blown off of the sand but it comes up in small pieces that I have trouble getting out. I haven't had much luck removing large chunks of it. It is getting worse daily and where it was concentrated in one spot it has now spread.  It will cover up the stuff I have in the sand bed and not let things open up.  

      Best solution?
