I moved this to the proper forum.. the profiles forum is not for questions.

Some more information about your setup would be helpful. There are ways to temporarily help, like h2o2 injected on the bba, but ultimately, it'll come back if you don't fix the reason it's there. Most likely, its a lighting issue.
