Export nutrients, get your flow straightened out to decrease deadspots and get your parameters in order. That's about as quick, easy and effective as it can get. I know some people will say to use chemicles but I'm all about fixing the problem and not patching it up. Happy water=happy tank.

So some extra water changes and make sure you syphon the cyano out as it will cause a spike.
