    Hornwort generally does better when floating. You can put the affected hornwort in a bowl of tank water and swish gently (I use chopsticks of salad forks) to try to remove the algae that's on it. I occasionally add a little potassium permanagate to the bowl to try to oxidize the algae, but sometimes that causes that hornwort to drop all of its needles. Those usually regrow quickly when floating.
