Hello, I have had a green hair algae outbreak in my tank and it won’t go away even if my nitrate and phosphate is at 0 and I can’t pull it out of my tank because there are a lot of corals there and I don’t want to knock any over or hurt any so I want to know is there any additives or chemicals I can use that will get rid of this green hair algae completely?

A few options would be to turn down any white/red spectrum on your lights, add more clean up crew members or do a blackout.
