I have been battling a bad case of BBA for the last two months or so. Last week, I decided to completely remove all the plants, spray/soak in hydrogen peroxide, and replant in new substrate (eco-complete). I also decided to do a week of Excel, to try to knock out any remaining algae. I understand that Val's are very sensitive to Excel, but I have used it in the past without any melting. This is after three days of using Excel (big dose on day 1, normal doses day 2-4 so far).
What I would like to know is if this is typical Val melting, or if this is a deficiency, or if it is from uprooting and replanting.
Thanks for any input!
