I hear yah, I battle bba before it was a nightmare... i use algaefix, I overdosed it a little bit, the most affected plant that I have is my giant Anubias, in was engulfed by bba, so I took it out of the tank place in plastic container and overdosed it with algaefix for 4days, I managed to kill the bba but my Anubias suffered a little bit, it lost all leaves all was left was the rhizome, now it's okay, in my main tank bba was not complete gone but manageable.i bought 6 Siamese algae eater and they finish the job that I started. Now my tank is bba free!! :-)
I think the secret to making your SAE eat algae is don't feed them until the algae is gone.
