BBA starting -- how to fight?
Well...BBA has started up in my tank out of nowhere. Been fighting it for about a week.
Tank background -
Ray II LED on for 7 hours a day
EI dosing everything except nitrates. Using two test kits to verify I have sufficient nitrates. Phosphate levels are acceptable as well.
~50% WC once a week
CO2 comes on an hour before the lights, and turns off 30 minutes before lights out - this is with a reactor. Do I need to turn on the CO2 sooner?
Drop checker shows bright yellow, have been upping CO2 but drop checker has always been lime green or better
Flow has been good, but I just changed out some media in my canister and gave it a good cleaning last night increasing flow even further. This is an Eheim 2028 full blast on a 60p
Double dosing Excel equivalent on a daily basis
I first noticed it on a rock. Pulled the rock out, H2O2 dip and scrubbed it clean, then another H2O2 dip and put it back in.
Then I noticed it on leaves. Mostly on my carpet, not on my blyxa. So every day I hunt the tank and clip leaves off that show signs of BBA. I am confident that I am removing all leaves that show BBA on a daily basis, but it continues to return. I clip maybe 5-7 leaves on my tropica 49 a day, not much at all. Now to clarify, this is not big bunches of BBA. This is a sole, singular tuft here and there that if I was not OCD, would probably go unnoticed. I literally get a magnifying glass out.
My goal is for it to stop before it gets worse. Aside from what I am doing, does anyone have any tips on how to improve on what I am doing?
