How much is small? According to the article I linked a few posts ago, as little as 0.03ppm phosphates can be a problem and should be lowered asap.

Tap water contains phosphates, phospates cause cyano. Test for phosphates, don't use tap, and vodka dose.

Don't think anyone has any other suggestions. Vacuum up as much as possible, and make sure your phosphates are zero. Phosphates cause the cyano, get rid of the phos, get rid of the cyano.
