1) Manually siphon it up
2) Cut back on feedings
3) Add more flow to the area and tank.

We have an excellent article on it in our SW articles section.

I used the same product and it was gone overnight.

Although if you dont address the issues that caused it in the first place it will just come back again.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks! Already cut back on feedings, and moved the coral it's on to higher flow, so hopefully I'm heading in the right direction!
