Battling BBA using metricide: day by day journal
I've allowed my planted 46 gallon bowfront to get infested with BBA for the sake of our planted tank blog at tankspiration.com. The goal was to get the tank looking terrible with BBA, and then to treat it, and blog about it, to show how a diluted solution of metricide/excel mixed with water, sprayed onto the hardscape could eliminate BBA over a two week period.
The photos are now posted on the site, with the treatment starting today.
I'll try to post frequently and describe EXACTLY what I've done to the tank, hopefully it will help others battle this dreaded algae.
