Default A word about BBA

Hi everyone just thought Id share an experience i had with the dreaded BBA
fighting it is not a problem with me I just overdose with excell and its done in a few days.
But a word on how i got it This tank is a 45 corner tank with 96 watts of t5 Ho on for 11 hours a day--its been running clean for 18 months before the BBA showed up-{I also pump co2 and pherts as well}
When folks here tell u to change your bulbs every year -DO IT thats way that stuff shows up I never cut light to fight it or time length just put new bulbs in and you wont believe the difference--but dont do it all at once ethier that can make things unstable as well if you have four bulbs just change 2 for a month -then the other two. keep pump in the co2 and pherts.
Oh fast growing plants will help for a while too like wisteria for sucking up excess nutrients. Hope this helps Bruce
