    blast it with a powerhead, but expect it to continue for atleast a month and a bit. Best leave your lights off and even cover the sides of you tank so light doesn't get in.
    That helps long term maintenance...

    Also sooner you start a refugium the better. you want that algae to take control before anything green starts to grow on your LR.

    @Novy - in the previous thread you indicated that the tank has a built in filter compartment. With some DIY, you should be able to add a refugium in the built in filter.
    Post some pics of the tank. That will make giving advice much easier.
