Hey all,
I am having a BBA problem (under control now but still there) in my 20 gallon planted tank. I was talking with a few members here and they suggested adding potassium to help rid me of this problem. My question is can one "overdose" with potassium like iron? Will too much KNO3 or potassium sulfate to an explosion of algae?

Co2 is between 20-30ppm depending on when I test throught the day. I will probably use K2SO4. The BBA isn't growing on my driftwood anymore but seems to grow on my crypts and aponogetons. My watersprite is fine as long as it get enough light. Same with my wisteria. I'm beginning to wonder if it is bba as it doesn't have that feathery tuft look but is black. I've never seen hair algae black.

Edit:
The best description I can give is little black hairs on the edges of my aponogetons, dwarf sag, and crypts. Some even on exposed roots.
