    Saltwater system? I haven't any personal experience, but a quick read through the interweb indicates poor water quality, excessive light and/or overfeeding are associated with this. Remove as much as you can manually. Check your nitrite and nitrate level.Do a 20% water change.
    Apparently, this is very hard to eradicate so you have to keep at it.
    Good luck!
