My riccia has become choked with hair algae this week- is there anything I can do to remove it? Excel isn't an option, as last time I used that in my tank any riccia that came into contact with it turned white.

I believe the hair algae is forming from a combination of old flourish gravel and my fert dosing. Everything will be fine in my tank until about one week after I do a water change, then hair algae will break out. Doesn't touch my stem just grows thickly on any exposed gravel, and the riccia since I added it.

Tank is 10 gallons, 40watt pc lighting, diy yeast co2, dosed daily with the Pfertz line. Ph 7.0, ammonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 10
