Yeah that's it. I have finally eradicated it after 7 years. I could
make it go dormant and you'd not know it's there with lots of water changes
but it always came back.

Aquarium Pharmecuticals "Algae fix" kills it as does H202. The former 
is lethal to invertebreates the latter is merely dangerous if used 
in too high a dose.

It took me several months to eradicate it.
