Can someone please help. Is this BGA? Since establishing my tank I have gotten rid of all the other types of algaes associated with the new tank. This one persists. It is almost black in color. It grows on the broad leave plants. It does not come off when scraped with a fingernail. I've been trying to cut the leaves with it on it but I'd really hate to cut back all my anubias so much.

Tank is 75G
Eco complete substrate
Fluval g6 canister filter
Finnex 24/7 planted plus
Co2 injection
Using seachem 7 day fert schedule
My nitrate levels at typically 10ppm with weekly water changes

Any advice would be great. This algae isn't terrible but such an eyesore on the nice green leaves

I don't want to use any algaecides or anything like that because it's a discus tank.

I have some copepods or something like that in my no fish tank and they eat all the GSA but probably your discuss will eat them in a few seconds. Increasing the phosphate levels will also help.
