Black fungus/algae
 
I'm getting a black fungus growing on my Amazon sword and Java fern, I'm sure somebody here knows what it is and what is the best way to take care of it. Any ideas?

+1 to this because it could either be BBA or Staghorn (at least those are the only 2 I could think of)

I bet it's just on the edges of the leaves, right?

Looking at some pictures of other people's tanks, it looks to me like BBA. I noticed this seems to be a fairly common, but I'm having a hard time trying to figure out how to get rid of it. My tank is 75 gallons, I'm currently running 2 marineland 360 canisters, and have 2-48" HO t5's. They tank is low tech and I have ADA Amazonia capped with gravel. any suggestions?
