"best" spot algae removal on anubias

Hi all!
What's the most effective way to get spot algae off
anubias? I've read about bleach-treating in the
archives (and the folly of symptom-based action), but
could unearth no instructions. The spot algae seems to
have slowed down (less on glass, less new spots, etc),
and the plant's in great health-- putting out at least
a new leaf a week. 

I can't add any more algae-eaters, unless a few shrimp
could take care of it-- it's a 6G with oto.

It's in too concentrated an area to snip off affected

Non-CO2, lowish light, dose 5-6mL Flourish Excel and
Potassium, 4-5mL Flourish Iron weekly. 

One other question, speaking of Flourish: When I asked
LFS guy how to clear it off, he suggested putting it
in a fishless tank and uber-dosing Excel for about a
week and it would "eat it off." He also said a bleach
dip would kill the anubias, so I'm not that confident
about his Excel claim. If it's true, though, how does
it work? 

Thanks for all the help you guys have been over the
last year!
