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.
