    Buy Algaexit. Sea view, OTF and Aquatic Avenue has them. Don't know about C328. Call and ask.

    Had tried with algaexit but did not get as much success. Boss from bioplast advice to pump more CO2, managed to reduce the growth of bba on my mini pelia. Hope my experience helps

    BBA is the worst of all. I have them growing at my highflow area, low flow area, area with lights blocked by moss. They thrive in all sorts of environment! I usually do a spot excel treatment, most effective and followed by algexit to slow the regrowth, I have never been able to totally remove them.

    BBA Yikess..

    on my opinion, this variant is the most opportunist creature.
    Make sure you have all balance in terms of flow, co2, o2, light, bacteria, growth, ferts, etc.

    I just mess around the subtrate for some experiment, and indirectly open the door for them to grow well on some spot. This time i give myself a chance to get closer what may trigger them (by doing manual removal and observe if it's coming back), rather than spot treatment basis. Along the road, i found that above mentioned balance is the best cure.

    My method is to use a chiller to stun the algae by lowering the temperature however the algae somehow still comeback, but only in small amounts here and there.
