    Ok well its back I am soaking the plants I see it on in a peroxide water mix and cleaning terra cotta pots with peroxide and drying them outto kill on there, will otos eat it? Could this be a result of my nitrates being high? Should I clean filter stuff?

    BBA isn't really affected by lighting so I doubt it would have a major effect.

    It's not really caused by light, either? It tends to be caused by fluctuating or too low of CO2 levels (eg if you're dosing excel maybe once a week, it will fluctuate, or DIY CO2 which is being changed too late and the CO2 is fluctuating, or just too low CO2 all together). Typically removal of it is through hydrogen peroxide or more often Flourish Excel - either double dosing in the tank for a sort amount of time, or dosing directly on to the BBA, or removing plants/decor and putting it in an excel "bath". Then try to keep your CO2 levels stable and perhaps dose excel daily from then onwards (plants will love it).
