to get rid of the existing bba spot dose with excel and to keep it from coming back even out your co2 level and you should be fine its caused from a combination of too much light and uneven amounts of co2 ex. too much one day and too little the next even things out and you'll be fine

its not really what i would call a high light tank, its under 2WPG 108 watts T5 Ho 10,000k bulbs over a 55g tank, i also don't have any excel, and am running DIY co2. Its ok though im learning to like the stuff it don't die like all the plants i put in the tank do Heck i can even kill duckweed!

I would definitely call 2wpg T5 over a 55g medium-high light, and needing pressurized, not DIY co2. Run one bulb until you get the co2 sorted.
