As long as you can use it to suck the jelly out, yes. You need to be careful not to spread it as it will affect healthy corals given the chance. Small air hose tubing is the easiest method.
Should I stop using it for a few days, siphon off as much of the jelly as I can, and treat with the marine vitamin?
That's the best solution. Just rinse the carbon in RO
water once you remove it and position it so it can dry. That way it can be re-used later. Syphon the jelly off, do a water change and add the vitamin. Keep doing a few water changes over the next week and add the vitamin at the regular dose.
After a week or so you should be able to place the carbon back in. The water changes should have done a decent job of clearing up the water.
How are you nitrates?
