    I had some lava rock covered in BBA. I let it die, but it was still stuck into the rocks really well. So I left the rocks in the sun for a week or so, then rinsed and scrubbed with a brush and it came right off. I'll boil them just to make sure they are safe since they came from a tank with internal worms and cyanobacteria.

    The plan is to pull the rock out and spray the algae with peroxide and let it sit for a bot 5 min. Then we will scrub the rock and then rinse it in clean water and put it in the tank. I've never tried this method but I've heard it works well.

    It should work. The peroxide will kill the BBA, you could let it sit in the peroxide for longer though, try 0.5 hrs. Once it's killed, it should scrub off easily, if you still have trouble, let it dry first, then scrub.

    Well we are trying to do it without killing all the bacteria in the rock. I want to keep as much alive as possible. Iím hoping this tank wonít have to cycle. Thatís the biggest reason we are doing it fast like that.

    Oh I get it now. Well I hope you get rid of it, but it might take some time to leave completely. Is this live rock? Maybe another dumb question, I probably missed info. I really don't know much about SW live rock lol.

    The peroxide is best done in water where the magic happens. Unless you dip the algae side in a bowl of peroxide and water solution for 5 mins. I think that would be more effective if you can retain BB by not letting peroxide touch algae free parts of the rock. Do it in the light as well, preferably a transparent container.
