Bba you can spot treat and manually removing as much as possible with filters off. It's a tough one. My 40b is perpetually plagued- rotting driftwood and direct sunlight for me. For thread algae check co2 and possibly phosphates. I'm not 100% on if it's low or high or just not balanced with nitrogen. I'm better at growing algae than getting rid of it lol- I'm enjoying seeing responses in the various algae I'm encountering. I haven't had thread yet, but I think I see some developing in my cube 😉 this'll be my next test in blind fert balancing

Might be from dead moss. I've noticed my java moss loves to pick up bba. I haven't had a problem with spot treating with excel for algae, I won't use peroxide, though, because I have had issues with that and moss.
