It sounds like blue green algae to me just by the horrible smell.
Excel wont really help as its actually a bacteria not an algae. The only way ive ever gotten rid of it is by tossing anything it was touching. I've read that Erythromycin will kill it but thats gonna kill all you beneficial bacteria as well. A blackout period and stronger flow should help remove it too.
