Need Help with Algae ID, Pics included

Hello all,

I have an algae growing in my tank that appears pretty aggresive and unlike any other I have ever had growing in my tank.

It is very soft, and is easily removed, however, I woudl very much not like to go diving into my tank to remove especially as it is growing on rocks with large SPS as well as the clams shell.

Additionally, if we have an ID, any suggestions on a type of fish that woudl feed off it? My Kole is not interested.

Looks like Dictyota. Easy to remove by hand, but it almost invariably breaks up & spreads....supposedly Naso tangs & scribbled rabbitfish will eat it.
