how to get rid off (grape caulerpa)

This thng is taking over my 30 gal tank and I want something o keep it in check. On my 125 I used to have a yellow tang and He will get rid of it fast but I do not want to put a yellow tang in a 30 gal tank. What type fish I can put in there to get this thing gone.

i am not sure what fish would eat but, once it starts growing into the rock its hard to get rid of, the only way i got it cleaned up was to pull it out by hand till i had it under control, took like 5 mins a day just pulling alittle at a time for about a week to get it under control, when pulling its ok if some of the roots stay in the rock for every 5 stands that i pulled only 1 grew back and i pulled it out

Refugium of at least 1/3 your tank volume will get it in a month.
