Best way to treat BBA
Ok so...I finally realized I had too much light on my 36 Gal Bowfront tank (tank is appx 18inch from water to substrate)....I was using Hagen T5HO ballast 24Wx2 and 39Wx2.....I have cut the light down to 24Wx2 (hoping this is enough)...and continuing with pressurized CO2 and EI dosing. However....I am now starting to battle an outbreak of what looks to be BBA....in the tank I have some tiger barbs, SAE, flying fox, blue rams and some amano shrimp.....wondering on the best way to fix this problem....I cant uproot the plants, it would just be too much to do (too many plants)....if anyone has any ideas, let me know!
