Update on the tank and BGA...
  • I cleaned the canister filter
  • Removed some dead leafs
  • Did a 45% water change
  • Turned on my UV
  • Used Hydrogen Peroxide target dosed on BGA areas
It's been about a week now and it's worked great! I do have small spots of BGA still but 90% of it has died! Since doing all this work my nitrates have come up from 5PPM to 10-15PPM, not sure if that helped at all.

I will update again in a couple days....

Thanks for all your advice...
