    it has the same color as BGA but I may be wrong, siphon them and see if it has a strong smell.

    Hi torque6,

    I used a credit card in between the glass and substrate to scrape off what's on the glass during the last water change.

    It had no strong smell and not slimey, it had more like a hard and dusty feel. It became powdery and dissolved into the water the moment I scrape it off.

    I have not seen the GBA before, only photos on the net.
    I'm hoping it's not the GBA but the color seems too dark to be GDA or anything else. Strange......

    @milk_vanilla,

    I guess you are right. The color does match lol

    I hope it doesn't spread above the substrate.

    Meanwhile I'm using black tape to cover them up for a week, I'll see if it gets better.

    Black tape does reduce the growth, but best to siphon them out. Dead BGA doesn't stay dead, it will grow again in the right conditions. Becareful of uprooting the plants though and use a needle shape straw for siphoning if possible. As long as you have BGA in the substrate, your waters will start having this foul smell. It will end up in your canister, lily pipes etc..

    Hi torque6,

    Thanks for the advices. Do you think it would work if I use a syringe to slowly siphon them out?

    The tank is 1 year old next week.
    Touch wood* if it does spread like crazy then I think a rescape next year is in order. Hands itchy to try something else
