How to get rid of rhizoclonium algae?


I have a problem with this in my iwagumi. I know I need to add co2 and ferts, but I can't get those for a week or so. What eats it? I siphon it out when I do a water change, and took out one of my lights. How do I eliminate it? Will Otos eat it? Any help is appreciated.

i assume that this is a new tank.

if so: it will go away on its own. but amano shrimp are reported to munch on it a bit

I've never had to deal with it (knock on laptop), but good luck with getting rid of it!
