    Looks like bubble algae. Ive heard a rock-boring urchin will do it. Not sure of the exact species though.

    Does not look like "Bubble Algae", looks like Caulerpa Racemosa.

    That picture you have is only one kind of Caulerpa Racemosa. The kind you have is the more common type.

    Doesn't look anything like any Caulerpa Racemosa I have ever seen. I vote bubble algae. Manual removal (with care taken not to burst them) is most effective (just use it as an excuse to do a water change) If you could get some out of the tank and onto white paper to photograph that would be awesome
