No, they don't. The only way you can get rid of it is by getting in there and manually removing it. You may have a big job ahead of you. :(
The freshwatr scud, Gammarus eats it, but it also eats all the rest of your plants. It has to be removed manually. It is a lot more resistant to bleach, than hair algae, also.
Sounds good, I have it isolated to one tank and I have been removing it by hand every so often. It came in on some plants from an online seller....

On a side note, I actually have tiny amphipods in my tank that came in on some native moss I collected.
Why not try rosy barbs. They eat hair algae and might just eat this stuff.
