Can anyone confirm what type of algae this is? Remedy? Stringy and not hair algae. probably ~1cm vs 1mm thin. Grows quickly. I pull them and they come back within the week.

Does it look like this? I've heard it called wire algae, sort of like HA but the strands are thicker. I tried Flucanozole and it knocked it back a little but still there. I added some Emerald crabs and they are eating it and I'm noticing some spots they already cleared out. Just have to keep an eye on them when it's gone and they don't start chomping down on some corals.
