Hating on the the ole bubble algae huh!? Lol. Well if you think that's bad then you should have seen it a few months ago. My emeralds and my two rabbitfish have been doing a great job of getting rid of it. One day it may be bubble algae free but honestly SPS when the battle so WHEN my take fills in you won't be able to see it.
