I just rubbed whatever I could off prior to planting. I just had a lot of plants in the tank which I read somewhere competed for nutrients with algae and algae usually lost if there are enough plants. Also turned the light off twice within an 8hr period. This disrupts the algae's ability to live/photosynthesize corectly - they are stupid plants I guess. LOL. I just notice they dried/shriveled up. I was surprised when I pulled the plants out though, didnt expect all the algae to die, but they did.
