Have had it multiple times..went blackout for a few days, dosed with Excel via syringe.. Went away, came back a month later repeat steps, same results.. . Started treating with seachem potassium on top of normal root tabs, got Amano shrimp. Haven't seen it back in over a year. Don't use co2 of any form. Dual filter with lots of flow. Over 2 wpg. Also used actinic lights from time to time for night viewing. Have since stopped.
