I have this velvety slimey globular algae

It grows on the rocks thick and will grow right over corals and doesn't just blow off the rock with a turkey baster like cyano will. I had to intensely scrub it off with a tooth brush

Any help on identifying this would be greatly appreciated to be able to figure out a plan of attack
