I've tried the scrubbing & bleaching method before, but unfortunately, the BBAs not just
on the driftwood, so as soon as that nice clean wood goes back in the tank, the BBA comes back.
Getting my nitrates in balance seems to be working. Maybe it's my imagination, but I think
it looks better. I'll post a new pic later.
, someone's also been eating the new growth on my rotala indica, and I'm pretty sure it's my SAEs (yeah, I know I said they were going away last weekend, but I decided to put up with them until the BBA is more under control). It could
be my clown loaches too. They've been punching holes in my rotala macranda and h.polysperma lately. I think maybe they're
going to have to go for a ride too. If I can ever catch them... That would be the downside of having a heavily planted tank -- too many hiding spots!
