I've finally decided to get rid of the lingering BGA in my 29 gal., once and for all. Just started the Maracyn method but clearly I need to account for the potential of a reoccurence afterward.

However, my tank is only moderately planted with a low bioload (one GBR and a total of 11 small-ish tetras). Given the GBR's presence, the nitrate levels have always been low to best suit his intolerance to it. But wouldn't this be the key reason that BGA is a problem in this tank?

How can I remedy it, in terms of prevention, without raising the nitrate levels too high?

What are the other details of your tank? Lighting, filtration maintenance ect. I believe that your rams can tolerate the small amount of nitrates that would be dosed in a planted tank.
