BBA die!!!! Die!!!

Finally got my bbalgea under control!!!! Not sure exactly what the miracle was. Never changed my lighting. 3 on 3 off 3 on.
I did increase my glute to 15 ml. (55 gallon). It could have been related to this. If so, it took awhile.
I also decreased water changes. I was doing pwc every week. Now I'm doing it once a month. I prefer more often pwc because I can see a difference in my plants but if the algea is fixed, I prefer that more.

Congrats. I would attribute the disappearance of the BBA to the increased glut. Less frequent water changes may actually lead to another BBA outbreak. There is an unconfirmed correlation between increased dissolved organic waste and incidents of BBA.
