Question Please help

Hi, I’m experiencing an outbreak of bubble algae, I tried the emerald crabs, Foxface fish and nothing, All my water parameters are perfect, No phosphate, No over feeding, No high nitrates or anything like that, 9 hours of light a day a good water movement, Any idea or advice on what’s the best way to get rid of them without hurting my corals, Any help on this matter will be appreciated.

You can try another foxface or Red Sea sailfin tang. You can also try vibrant. It worked for me about after six or seven doses and I didn’t lose any corals but I’d tell you to monitor your parameters closely if you go with vibrant
