I started my slam yesterday bought my chlorine up for normal slam. I read article about mustard alge. I started my slam to treat mustard algea. It wasn't until last night while I was reading it again and it stated to first slam standard way and when finish raise chlorine to mustard algea level. I was adding chlorine every 2 hours until 8:00 last night. My question is, am I ok or should I go back to normal level? I am sure have mustard algea because I stared with a green swampy mess.

There is no reason to think you have mustard algae in a green swamp. In fact, mustard algae is yellow and typically appears in an otherwise clear pool.

Let your FC level drop back down to normal SLAM level and stick to that.
