So, its been about two weeks without power back at my home (sandy).

However, even before that had happened I had acquired a rather bad case of BBA. It basically has carpet all of my driftwood....left plants alone however. In any event....it apparently has turned a bright red according to my parents. I haven't seen this myself, but I have no idea what that means. So help?

I think BBA is really a red algae anyway. But, it looks black to us for some reason. Mine turn pink or red when I squirt Excel on it, then it gets white, then it vanishes. (Then it returns as new BBA!)

you could also try a black every 2 mothes or so. it work s great for me and all i do its turn the lights of for 3 days and then squirt excell on it to keep the growth under control
