The main idea is just to get alot of it (the stuff you can get to) and the hard to reach stuff will die off with the changes you made as far as RO/DI water and feeding every other day. Hang in there. Also dont use your pumps to do this as it will go to fast. Just use a regular gravity siphon and it will go slower and you will get more algea out..

Man, awesome ideas all thanks a bunch. I like both the toothbrush idea and the idea to use the Maxi-jet with a sponge or something to collect the algae on the output end. I'm going to give them both a shot tomorrow, will get some water change water ready tonight.
