yassy Posted December 23, 2021 Share Posted December 23, 2021 My community tank 75 gallon used to have no BBA but lately, if it is because I see fry popping up here and there and increasing amount of food to go in caused this issue or not but I see BBA growing,especially on top of prefilter sponge , and on leaves of Anubius, and airline tube in sponge filter.. I am thinking of spot treatment;try with hydrogen proxide 3% one directly put via Q tips out of water and put back when water change day and if it did not work, try spot treatment same way with easy carbon from aquarium coop today. Brandy told me easy carbon should not get dried out so, I need to spot treat and then drop into the water right away? Is it same with hydrogen proxide spot treatment or maybe flourish excell spot treatment as well? I will try and see if I move LED light placement so it would not hit prefilter and if it would not grow BBA as well. I am also thinking I put a new prefilter on aqua clear in my 75 gallon,and clean the prefilter real good with boiling water like Brandy said and after that, put the prefilter on top of ceramic bio thing that are in the mesh bag and keep it soaked in tank water and when I clean the one that is covering aqua clear 110 tip in the tank, I can put this prefilter that I was keeping in the filter box. Do you think that works as well? For combating BBA, what are your preferred method? Hydrogen proxide? Flourish excell? Easy carbon? Do you prefer to dose into the tank directly or do you prefer spot treatment? Thank you. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
