Once the leafs of a plant are infested with BBA you can't save those leafs. You have to remove them. Killing the BBA and removing the dead algae leaves a badly scarred leaf that can't survive. Big BBA infestations require major pruning, replacement of plants, cleaning, etc. followed by changing the conditions that led to the BBA in the first place.
