Mr. Saltwater Tank used to be good, but now its just an advert for different companies JMO.
Wow, from reading the original post it seems that this guy has cyano, not bubble algae. No bubble algae outbreak happens that fast. Just a case of overfeeding and high nutrients. I would suggest lights off for three days along with an aggressive dose of GFO. Or you can dose cyano treatment chemicals that are usually antibiotics that will undoubtedly kill good bacteria as well. Good luck.
if it really is bubble algae,, emerald crabs for maintenance, and carefully siphoning out the bubbles usually does the trick
Given the fast time-line, cyano is my suspicion as well. A picture would help make sure you're going down the right path.
