If the fuzz algae is Oedogonium, then a blackout won't work, unless
you want to try one for a year or more. I tried keeping a gallon
jar infested with Oedogonium in total darkness for six months, and
the algae resumed growing as soon as it was returned to the light.
Oedogonium hairs are too tough for guppies, ramshorn snails or pond
snails to eat.
