I hope it is BBA. I have posted this question on two other sites and have had mixed results between BBA and cyanobacteria but am starting to agree with the notion that it is BBA. The reason that I am still unsure is that it looks like sludge and less like fluff. You obviously have studied the picture have a good idea about what your on about but Im still unsure.
I've researched both and am I right in thinking that cyanobacteria grows in high light and low NO3 and BBA grows in lower light and High NO3. My tank has highish NO3 and Low to medium light. To me it looks like Cyano but my tank has the conditions for BBA.
Does that make any sense at all?
Just read what you said again. NO3 not responsible for BBA. but still do cyano grow in low NO3 as this is what i've read.
Scratch that. just tell me why you think it is BBA over Cyano?
