BBA is tough. This is what I did, but it still took time. I overdose Seachem Excel at 1 ml per gallon per day, inject CO2 as close to 30 ppm as possible, and provide good flow. Algae spores like to settle and good water circulation prevents them from settling as easy. Every PWC cut off BBA infected leaves. Spot treating with the filter off using excel in a syringe may help also (some people use H2O2 for spot treatment).
"how do i increase water movement so that plants and fish can avoid being blown everywhere?"
Maybe a small HOB filter if the powerhead is too much.
