I would start siphoning it out every pwc and change more water every pwc until it's gone. Also be sure not to over feed .

Its not that easy . It will take a while to be rid of it. As long as you keep up the water changes and don't over feed it will eventually go away but it will be a battle lol.

I was having trouble with it also. I siphoned it out and it looked great but always came back. I was good with feeding an run gfo. I couldn't stop it! I slowed it down though. Red slime remover did the trick great!

Red slime remover does not fix the problem. Nutrient problems can only be fixed by export. No chemical you dump in risking livestock will solve that.

Many people use this product with no regard.
