Keeping Algae of Anubias?


I've read a lot about adding phosphate to the water will help keep the algae off anubias leaves. Has anyone had luck with this?

If not what do you use?

I have anubias 'nana'. I've had BBA and GSA attacks. I use Excel, reduced light, and scissors. I snip off affected leaves and new ones grow in quickly. I've also pulled them out for an excel bath.
