I am not using co2 but have some issues with BBA, i change water @ 50% weekly. i think this can cause a spike in co2 levels from what I have read.
I use excel once or teice a week, should I use it daily and dose heavy after a water change as shown on directions to maintian a constant level that would control BBA?

Do I need to start pressurise CO2 ?


Thanks
Tom

pressurized Co2 will completely eradicate with the most ease. Once the appropriate dosage for the tank is given with the proper amount of flow BBA will melt away. You may still have some trailing problems getting completely rid of your issue though if you don't have the right amount of biomass in the tank. Make sure you have a surplus of fast growers inside the tank and the right amount fertz also.
