Can any one point me to a macro algae guide that has pictures and ways to get rid of it?

Both my friend and I received a frag of zoos from a person about 4 months ago. We now both have the same macro algae growing from the rock. It is really tough and I can't just pull it off. I'm hoping of a way to identify it so I can then learn how to get rid of it without getting rid of the zoos.

I would post a picture but I'm at work. Its green..... ( ha ha, I'm funny huh :) ) with little round things that look like grapes. No leafy vegetatation yet, just long shoots with the little round things growing up off it. Sound familiar?

I agree with caulerpa. I have it in my fuge. My tangs love it so much, none can survive in the DT. Get some macro algae loving fish. How big is your tanl?
