Converting from no co2 to pressurized, expected changes?

I recently upgraded my year-old 29g setup to pressurized co2 and was curious as to what I can expect. I've immediately seen improved plant growth, naturally, but I'm curious as to what I can expect in terms of my BBA? I would say that I have a tolerable level of BBA, meaning that it is present throughout most of the tank but not in a way that detracts from the display. It's growth was immediately stunted with the addition of co2, but I am curious as to whether I can expect the existing BBA to die off and go away, or should I continue cutting leaves and removing substrate granules covered in it?

Thanks for your help.

IT WILL NOT DIE.. ur giving it more of what it needs to grow.. however new healthier leaves will prevent it from growing

removal of infected areas over the next couple weeks wil lstill be required don't remove it all at once, that wil lstunt ur ecosystem.. do a little here, a little there

it worked best that way for me on my 29

BBA is an enormous pain in the you know what! Trim, remove affected items etc. spot treating with hydrogen peroxide helps a lot to
