Advice before I tear down because of BBA
I havnt posted in a while but I'm still working on my tanks. However I am at my breaking point with my 55 gallon. The BBA has gone down and came back with full force and I am thinking the only solution now is tearing it all down and starting from scratch. I feel like this is the only way to really get a fresh start and at the same time change the parameters to prevent any further episodes. My swords, crypts, and ferns are just constantly being affected with BBA and now my drift wood has become a victim. I have tried scrapping it all off, using excel, reducing my photo period, increasing my Co2, adding an additional water circulation pump and moving around the CO2 diffuser.
My question is for you guys, are there any additional aspects I can change around to really make a last ditch effort or should I just stick with my plan and tear everything down and clean it off then start again. Has anyone tried this before with some decent success?
It's a 55g with a T5 HO 2 55w fixture, about 3 inches above the top of the tank. I know this is high lighting but I thought I had it under control for a while, especially with the addition of the CO2.
Any help would really be appreciated guys.
