    Turn off. It would have progressed much faster if you did that from the start.

    Turn off the side with less algae. When the holes are full, turn it back on.

    3 more days. Then brush most off, including tray and slot. Then run another week, still with 1 light.

    Yes brush because you want to get the stuff out of the holes.
