IME, fuzz algae on plants and glass indicates a trace deficiency. Adding trace elements such as Seachem Flourish will quickly eliminate the fuzz.

There is currently no DIY available. CSM+B is very poor for aquatic plants and I don't recommend it. It causes toxicity very easily, especially if dosed at recommended EI levels. There's way too much zinc and copper, as well as too little boron and iron.
