Black Beard Algae isn't going away...
Hello guys, I have a small BBA problem happening only on my piece of Hornwood and it doesn't seem to go away. About 3 days ago, I took the wood out, and I tried dabbing the areas of BBA with hydrogen peroxide. Then I changed the amount of excel from every other day to everyday. I also lowered the water level to increase water agitation. Today, I again, took the wood out and I poured hydrogen peroxide onto the BBA and I let it sit for 5 minutes before rinsing it off and putting it back in the tank. Is there anything else I can do? I do not want to treat the tank with hydrogen peroxide because I don't want to disturb the beneficial bacteria.
The picture shows what the BBA currently looks like.
