Hi all, algae I'd please. I have an Evo 13.5, over the last few months I,very noticed this growth which has started spreading.
It is very wirery and has a good foot hold on the rock, very difficult to remove. Is Bryopsis ?

It’s got the same growth pattern but doesn’t appear to have the feathery fronds of the bryopsis I’m familiar with. Is it feathery, maybe my eyes are too old.

It doesn't look feathery or fern like to me either, but very difficult to remove, you can't pull it from the rock, but can cut it with scissors, which is probably why its spreading all over the tank

Well that’s good news. You can problem get something that eats it.
I do have a selection of hermits and snails in there, no of which are interested also got a tail spot blenny.
I do have an Emerald crab in another tank, may give that a try
