If I could pick my tank up now and take an after shot, I would.

My only success in battling BBA has come with Excel spot dosing.

Look into this thread with a disclaimer that it may affect your livestock. You also need to find out what's causing the algae and make sure you make the appropriate changes whether or not you go ahead with more drastic algae treatments. Your problem may be too much light for the amount of CO2. This can be adjusted by either reducing intensity or time the light is on. You can reduce intensity by raising the lights or placing window screen under the lights. Pressurized CO2 should help but you have to be ready for more frequent pruning and adequate fert dosing.

Purging... I can only say excel spot dosing or get about 20 amano shrimp.

I made the jump to pressurized COČ. Just a paintball setup. I'll try and make a post or two about that, but in the meantime here's a video...

Yeah, they all kind of match. Didn't plan it that way. In fact, I want to get rid of a bunch of the platys and get something that will school more. Maybe to keep with what seems to be a Christmas theme I'll get a bunch of rumynose tetras!
