Default Can I kill my BBA with algaefix?

I'm sick of looking at it, and I want it gone now. I have no inverts, so this is an option for me. I would do excel, but I don't want to damage my java ferns.

Yes, after seeing everything on algaefix, it seems like it is viable for most algaes.

Yes it will work on it, but you still need to fix the root cause

I have does my tank with Excel before and my Java Ferns are fine. Valisneria doesn't like it though.
