So essentially awhile back my caulerpa went sexual, probably because I didn’t give it enough light. I cleared the tank of it but it got into my canister filter hoses, I’ve ran some brushes on a string through them but I have to get literally 100% of it out of the hoses or else it comes back. I’ve cleaned it before and I got a lot of i out but it all came back. Can I soak it in freshwater or some type of solution overnight to kill the algae. It keeps yellowing the water that runs through the canister filter. Thank you!

To clean everything out, hoses included I would set the canister filter up running ( 5 gallon bucket) with a bleach water solution for 12 hours.
Flush it out and run the same using a strong dechlorinator solution.
Air dry and you're good.
