Drop checker coloring help

Okay, so I am having BBA problems and read to move around the drop checker to see if the color changes. In some areas it changes from green to yellow. What does this mean for the fish?

It means nothing if the fish are looking fine. I would try to get more of the CO2 circulated in the evenly in the tank and maybe up the CO2 little by little.... Just keep an eye on the fish and try to get a even readings.

Just my $0.02

Your fish will be fine as long as there is good water surface movement and water circulation in the tank. The fish would swim in an area with more oxygen saturation.

There is a nice surface moment and the fish do fine. If I up the co2 even a little, they start slowing down and gasp at the surface. Yet, the BBA is driving me insane. I'll add another powerhead and see if that helps. Thanks.
