Many people have noted that the dreaded BBA algae likes to hang around areas with flowing water.
BBA is black brush algae, the black (actually red) algae that can utterly destroy your plants, usually showing up when the level of carbon dioxide in the water isn't stable. It has been noted to cause many planted aquarium hobbyists to switch to stamp collecting.Bba?
First, welcome to APC!So to follow up on this. I've also read that too much iron can cause this algae. I've lowered the time that the lights are on and lowered how much Fe I dose and it is seemingly gotten worse. What have you tried to control it?
I've been struggling with this algage for almost 2 months. My CO2 is pretty stable and I've made the changes I described above.
