    Sounds like cynobacteria.

    Mardel Maracyn (NOT Maracyn TWO), at 1/2 recommended dosage for three days. Contains Erythromycin, which kills the bacteria. You will see most of the slime break up or disappear in 3 days.

    Can you get a pic? Treating for cyano will do nothing if it is actually GSA and vice versa.
