I have all other issues with the tank under control, I still cannot see to get my some of my plants to overcome the BBA. I have my lights on from 2pm to 10pm, everyday. I have my co2 on all the time. My drop checker is green. I have a sump running about 1200gph on a 125 tall tank. I am Dosing ferts, with a 50% water change every week, What else should I do? I will get readings tonight, I also do a trim every week. Should I just get rid of the plants that have the bba out break on them to see if the stops the spread?

Cut off the affected leaves. Having good CO2 levels and proper circulation will prevent BBA from appearing but will not kill or remove BBA that's already there. Also double check fert routine, healthy plants are more resistant to algae infestation.

Ok thanks I was thinking of adding a powerhead to the tank just for water movement.
