It'll block the light to the algae and stop it from spreading.
Just don't bury your Drosera seedling.
Just my 02¢ worth.

I couldn't use silica sand because I would definitely kill off the seedlings. Instead, I tried keeping them a bit drier for a while and wash the pots as much as I could from the bottom. Water is still brown, but as the seedlings started to grow I stopped panicking about it.
Long story short, fast forward to their current status.
Some of the seedlings are unnaturally aggressive and started growing extremely fast. Fungus gnats only helped them do even better. Some of the seedlings are much slower and smaller, they are colored red and they don't get as much food. I hope they get larger and start munching gnats soon. There are not many left though.
