I don't think there's a clean up crew for red slime that i know of really. I believe its a sign of excess nutrients. There's a red slime remover that you can add but it won't permanently get rid of it.

I added a refugium with chaeto and rowaphos and i haven't gotten red slime since.

So you might be getting it from feeding the tank too much or maybe its from your water having too much phosphates.


Other experience people might be of more help but there are a lot of threads on it that you might want to search for and take a look at.
