What do you think would happen if on a med to high light tank with co2, normally run with the EI dosing method of the ferts , the ferts were stopped to try to deal with BBA ?

I wouldn't mind if the plants stopped growing for a while . What can be expected if the ferts are stopped temporarily ? Any ideas anyone ?


Thanks !!!!

Ditto Get some excel and spot dose. If you can't afford excel then try H2O2. Stop filtration with the H2O2 for about 20 min. .... AND reduced your light wattage and/or duration.

High light tanks with no fertilizing, and no nutrient rich substrate, have plant problems, like transparent leaves, some plants not growing at all, misshapen leaves, weak plants, all of which invite algae to take over. Fertilizing does not lead to algae problems. High light without all of the needed maintenance, fertilizing, CO2, pruning, etc. does lead to algae problems.
