The top half of my macro algae dried? Toss it all?

The pump on my HOB fuge went out and the water level in the fuge was low enuf to expose the top 1/3rd of my caleupra (sp?). Of course it's greyish looking now.

Is the hole batch lost. Seems like when I tried to start the pump up again, I got grey stuff in the tank floating around, so I turned it off again.

I'm thinking 2 choices 1) try to remove the top layer and deal w/the bit of floating dead stuff for a bit, or 2) remove all the macroalgae and just have rock rubble in there since that caleupra is so hard to find.

Gotta do something soon since I'll be leaving town for 5 days soon.

Input pls.
