Driftwood, Planting & Trimming to rid BBA
I jumped in a few days ago with an introduction and posted a photo of my tank. After battling BBA for the past 6 mos, I was inspired to trade out driftwood pieces, pull out the carpet and get more aggressive in treatment.
Sprayed hydrogen peroxide on substrate and lightly affected plants.
Did a 3 min soak of highly affected java fern in a solution of 5 percent bleach.
Removed manzanita and will treat that for future use.
Left the Crypyts alone, and planted a few new species.
Starting this journal to show my grow out and hopefully journal ridding of BBA.
