This might not kill the whole problem, but it will kill the BGA on the spot.
Get a syringe, fill it up to about 1 ml of Hydrogen Peroxide, and spray it on the BGA.
It will bubble up and die after 1 or 2 treatments.
However, word of caution too much Hydrogen Peroxide can kill plants and fish.
GOOD LUCK!

The tank has been setup for few months it's a 29 gallon setup with canister filter, marineland aquatic plant led and finnex ray 2 both size about 29"-30" the co2 is on a slower bubble rate because I upped it and almost killed my fish both times I tried to up it. Substrate is Ada Amazonia I have giant hair grass in the back about 6 and blyxa japonica in middle and hair grass and HC growing in the front
Ferts I do daily before lights come on about 6 ml or 6 pumps from an old Ada brighty K bottle of PPS pro which normally calls for 3. I try to change about 30% every week of water sometimes it doesn't happen though

Did you initially do big daily or semi weekly water changes? Aquasoil (AS) is very rich in N so I doubt that's the problem in this case. I run AS based high-light tanks and only added K for the 1st six months without any deficiencies. Bigger water changes, less feed, add carbon/purigen to filter and/or erythromycin tablets (dose as directed) and I think it will be gone.
