GREEN HAIR ALGEA

Hey guys my tank has been set up for about 6 months now, all levels are always perfect, 60 gal tank with a 30 gal sump/refugium with colpura algea growing, over the last couple of weeks I have noticed some green hair algea growing on my rocks and power heads. I took the power heads out and cleaned them, How can I get rid of the algea on the rocks?
using r/o water for water changes 10% every week.
The algea smell pretty bad too.
As far as lights 1 150W MH, with 2 96 atinic lights running for about 10hrs

Inhabitants: 1 bubble anemoney, 2 clowns, 4 shrimps, 15 hermits, 10 turbo snails, and 4 other corals.

Might try a toothbrush, tweezers, etc. If you had bucket of RO water you might be able to clean them in that or saltwater. depends on how much and how big I would think.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

You'd want to try to pull everything out before trying to scrubb. Scrubbing can kill all life on the rock.
