There are a number of people that have used over the counter 3% Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) to knock this stuff right out. Do a site search and the details should pop up for you. Basically shut off the pumps, allow the water to calm down and dose right onto it. Vacuum out all you can and up the nitrates.
