I'd do everything the same in the planted tank. But I'd likely up to the CO2 progressively very slowly and obverse plants, fish carefully, never do this and then leave for the day etc.

Hit with 3 doses, one each day, it will kill any green hair algae.
It had no effect on Cladophora, which is about as close to moss and plants are anything we ever see.

I've only seen 100% kill for 3 dose for the same stuff on the rose moss.

If you catch the hair algae early on.....then 1 single dose and very few shrimp losses will occur.
