    having a hard time as the tank is getting overrun with the dreaded BBA
    at least the liquid carbon has turned up so can try double dosing this directly onto the worst of it, but i will probably lose my dwarf hairgrass by the looks of it.
    the mistake of getting cocky after changing everything and not taking more time. 
    so lights reduced to 80% at the highest and a drop to 50% for a couple of hours and down to 6 hours total so we will see if i can slowly get back on track


    On the plus side the other half thinks she saw one of the blue velvets berried so fingers crossed for new shrimpies

    I had a similar problem with bba.  It all started when I started dosing easycarbo.  Apparently swings in ph can cause bba to spread.  Ironically a heavy dose of easycarbo directly onto the bba has got it back under control.  For me light times made no difference.

    Check your feeding levels as well Eyeclops - if there is any food left over (not including shrimp pellets etc) then you should remove it fairly quickly.

    MIght be worth scrubbing the BBA off along with your lighting reduction - as its healthy it may not die back as quickly, whereas if you get rid of as much as possible whatever is left might not grow back as strong with the reduced lighting / food.
