So I have a snail in my tank with what looks like Red Hair algae growing on him.. Is this good Algae or should I pull out this hard worker and give him a scrub?

I would take him out and scrub it off of him. I don't know what the algae is, but the red fluffy kind of stuff took over my tank at one point though I was able to get rid of it finally.

Look like Asparagopsis sp.
 

Have you ever had an algae outbreak so bad that you had to break the tank down and start over?
