i've used red slime remover, it's a yellow powder.
works 100%
i used it 2 times already with great success before i got my BTA.
what i just did was use my syphon hose and sucked it off my gravel.
then covered the whole front of the tank with new sand.

i was happy today, my BTA was taking in my mytosis shrimp i was giving him, he closed his tips around the food and took it in, so hopefully that's a good sign.
