DeeJayA1 Sounds like the power outage may have been a blessing in disguise (for your bba). From my experience, when it turns red, it's dying.

BBA turning RED?????

So, its been about two weeks without power back at my home (sandy).

However, even before that had happened I had acquired a rather bad case of BBA. It basically has carpet all of my driftwood....left plants alone however. In any event....it apparently has turned a bright red according to my parents. I haven't seen this myself, but I have no idea what that means. So help?
