    Manually remove the algae with some tweezers. You could remove the piece from the system and pluck the algae from it in a separate container of tank water so that algae fragments remain outside the system, then return the piece into the tank.

    That coral skeleton, by the way, may make a good 'frag station' (attach some other type of encrusting coral on it or super glue a stony coral frag to it.

    no point trying to treat lymphocystis. It is incurable unless you physically remove the infected part of the fish.

    Emerald Crabs eat bubble algae. You could invest in some cleaner crews for the job.

    Yes with these crabs they are omnivorous things. I know that when they are small they are herbivorous but become carnivores later in life.

    They are considered semi reef safe... Most folks I know locally don't have issue with the crabs.. I only have several females in my display. So far I have not caught it chomping on any softies...
