Your best bet (if you don't want to break the tank down and move everything after cleaning, etc.) would be to increase the water level or trim the plants at the surface so the watermeal is by itself. From there it's a matter of manually removing every piece that you see and keep a diligent eye for anything under the lips of the frame, behind the heater / on the heater cord, etc.

What do you mean by dips? As in, dips for new plants to avoid other situations like this? If so, I've had great success with alum baths for getting rid of snails and snail eggs. For algae and whatnot, a lot of other people have had success with potassium permanganate dips or bleach dips. Each has their own advantages and disadvantages over the other, so research them and choose one that you are comfortable with using.
