Good luck; you have it bad. Been there, done that; have the shirt. Everyone has given you great advice. You do need an antibiotic (because the stuff you treating is not really algae), followed with a blackout. Fish will be fine, and your good bacteriea might take a bit of a hit. After you are done, keep an eye out for an ammonia spike. I had a mini-cycle sneak-up on me afterwards.
