Go with the flow, remove the nutrients and siphon the slime out.

A. D. IMO more water movement in affected area. Have your water tested as it feeds on Phosphates and excess nutrients. If it is getting out of control you could use a product like ChemClean's Red Slime Remover as a temporary fix. Add a Phosphate remover.
