Hey guys. I have recently started to suffer from Black Brush Algae in my tank and its a bit of a pain! It gets on the driftwood and rocks which I can scrub (even though this is a chore) but its really hard to remove from my anubias and java fern without damaging the leaves, and I can never get it 100% off them (it always clings to the very edge of the leaf even after scrubbing). Ive never had this problem before and my theory is because I used to have alot more plants and quicker growing ones too, but I was trying to stick with just rhizomes at the moment. I have heard Excel is apparently good at getting rid of BBA but ive never used it myself, so I wondered if anyone had any experience of using it to control algae? or just of getting rid of BBA in general? Thanks!
