Take that plant out immediatly and dose it with excel in a small holding container until the BBA goes away. I will do a double dose of excel on the main tank as well just to rid the water of any spores that might be floating around.

Although I don't know where it comes from...I do know that every time my java moss tank gets too much light, that's when I get the outbursts. Luckily I have a school of SAE and they keep it at bay, but when I had a huge outbreak when my Dad decided to unplug the timer so the lights were on 24/7....the whole tank was filled with it. Only after roughly have a bottle of excel and manually picking out the large clumps did it finally go away.
