Looks like lots of BBA as well. Keep pruning and removing waste.
yessir, will do. i just finished doing a major pruning, removal of detritus and gunk.
i trimmed off the worst affected leaves and was able to rub some leaves clean with my fingers. i tried to suction as much BGA remnants as possible.
thank you noodle for reminding me crypts aren't as fragile and patience is just as much a key to success.
although i had a massive melt occur, i checked each rhizome and most are still crisp, well rooted and intact. beneath the melt there is even some new growth. again a promising sign my plants will bounce back.
i know my tank doesn't look to great, but if my plants bounce back, it will be another plus against the BGA... i am inclined to think, perhaps oxygen is the silver bullet for BGA... i guess we'll see if it returns after this tank maintenance. [fingers crossed]
