if you want to ude a syringe take off the needle and throw it away then use straight h2o2 on the effected areas with the filter off and any power heads so there is no water movement keep squiting it on under water and leave the tank alone for 1 half an hour then start it up again your bba will turn red in a few days then disolve.
If you want to treat the water collum use 3 times the normal dosage of excel for three days and it will be dead-NOTE: some plants dont take kindley to it like ricca and vals--but the vals will grow back in short order.
