Thankfully, they seem to be dying off. Either that, or the pea puffer is eating them all

Pitchfork shaped algae

Update: not algae :)
If you took a green pitchfork and made the tines fan out in a cylinder instead of a plane, that's what my algae looks like. What is it really called? Pic attached

Were there any recent changes to the tank? That might narrow things down.
What kind of crypt is that? I'm not sure all crypts can handle brackish water.
