    injecting bubble algae

    Was wondering if anyone ever got rid of bubble algae , and if so how.. tried removing them manually but some would pop releasing spores into tank.. heard of using emerald crabs, but all they would do is pop them as well.. thought of injecting them with an insulin needle filled with something like aphasia killer or sucking the spores out with same method.. anybody ever try?

    I used emerald crabs and they don't pop the spores and have yet in 9 months to have an reoccurrence of bubble algae

    I use a laser and fry them. The skin turns pale to clear and they just go away without popping.
