dealing with some slight BBA issues. very minimal tufts on some of the hard scape. by no means is it out of control, but the little things are what bother me.

I have been treating with h2o2, and I noticed when the BBA dies off it goes through the cycle of turning red than white and falling off. I caught a shrimp chowing down on some and was able to get the footage. he was sitting on this one tuft of BBA for almost an hour before hiding under some blyxa in the back.

I was under the impression inverts didn't really mess with BBA, has anyone seen this behavior before?

I have a bunch growing on some wood in pleco tank that the cherry shrimp also in the tank, are all over at any time I look at the tank.
They do not seem to remove much at all, nor do the juvenile bristlenose in the tank.
I rather like the look of the stuff on the wood.
My brother and sister think it look's cool as well.
The stuff has nearly incased a couple very large pieces of football size wood.
I think organic matter(see pleco poop) feed's the stuff along with natural decay of the wood itself.
