This is bascially what I did to get rid of the dust algae. Instead of
scrubbing and rinsing in buckets I took the dust-filled scrubbing
sponge and squeezed it out right next to the siphon while I
emptied the tank for water change - the green dust cloud
got sucked right out of the water.
I also let my UV running a couple of hours after every wc
to nuke eventual dust leftovers floating around.
I also tried to limit light hitting the front glass by shoving the hood
as far back as I could.
