An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, maintaining close to ideal conditions is how you keep BBA away.
Nothing else will work.

Hello Burks, any one of your choices would be fine with the amount of light you have.
Those ferts would last you a long time.

Even if you did have pressurized Co2 2x55 light is too much.
Cut one of the 55 completely off and raise the other 55 up from the tank
to decrease intensity.

Dosing N isn't a cure for BGA, that stuff is nasty, which is not even an algae,
it is an infection.
Dosing Excel will not affect BGA either, though, plants love it.

How many bulbs are in the 54wx48" fixture?

No mention of Co2 so I assume you don't have it, if so too much light.

A 2217 is actually too small for a 65, it worked at first but has since...

It will bump the GH a bit, not much, but will not affect the KH.
Mg is a trace mineral also, I add it/epsom salt once a week along with GH-
booster and additional K+.

This time raise that light fixture up off the tank/hang it 8" to 10" inches
above the water, that's a lot of light. or get a smaller fixture.

I've used them all, so I will say this, if you can't grow nice plants using Plantex,

Agreed, way too much light for no Co2, either add gas or change to a smaller
light fixture.

If you had Co2, then the plants would be using/eating up the ammonia under
the intense light, so, in a...

Nice start and good job!

That is a lot of light.

How are you diffusing Co2? Co2 will be the biggest challenge of all, you need
good diffusion & distribution of the gas.

questions first:

How much light do you have?

How well planted is the tank?

Do you have pressurized Co2?

As long as your not burning an insane amount of light carbonated water will
work, but it is more work and less efficient than simply adding well diffused
gas directly to tank. Do both :)

I don't add that much in a month for the three highlight tanks I have running.
Plants just do not need that much stuff in the water, unless you have a ridiculous
amount of light.
