The faster I prune this stuff the faster it grows. I ripped out a ton of this stuff last week but due to not being home much its taking over.
Ive tried cooking the rock, scrubbing it, everything but using Mojo Method taking a torch to it. What fish or other critters will eat this stuff.

Foxface rabbitfish, sohal tang, naso tang, yellow tangs (different from individual to individual), and others.

I'd try the foxface first. I had a one spot foxface and it obliterated all my caulerpa in the old main tank. The fish taught the yellow tang to eat it, too.

Hopefully when you are pruning you are doing it outside the tank? Cualerpa can be toxic to your tank. I would pull the rocks out and take as much as you can off. Scrub the rock with fresh saltwater then plop in the foxface to finish it off. HTH
