Lyngbya problem

Hi, I think that I have lyngbya. It is a hairy brown looking growth. It is mainly around my overflow box. I've cleaned my rocks twice, only to have it return. What do you suggest that I do to get rid of this stuff.

Thanks for your help as always.

It might be. If it is, blue leg hermits, nerites and lowering the tank temperature will all help clear it up.

how many blue legged hermits and nerites would be needed. Tank size is 75 gallon. Would this be the same stuff that grows on my caulipa algae in the fuge?
