Maracyn not working on BGA

I've been dosing Maracyn for 5 days now (at first at half the recommended dose and in the last 2 days the full dose) but it seems to have no effect on the BGA. I can still see it everywhere and it still looks very green and spreading. I'm pretty sure i didn't buy the wrong meds... the back of the package says it contains 200mg of erythromcin activity.

When it works.. it should turn all the BGA in the tank brown-red right? Seems like everyone else has had results after just 2-3 days.

Just to update. I used what was left in the box to do 4 days at full dose and now the tank is clear of BGA. I've also resumed regular dosing ( I stopped dosing for a while which was the cause of the BGA in the first place ) and bought a Eheim 2213 Classic for better flow.

After the BGA cleared up i got another kinda stringy algae outbreak in my tank though.. and now i'm working on fixing that.

Thanks for the help guys.. i really appreciate it
