Black brush algae solution
My wifes nano tank at her school has suffered a filter death.At the moment we found it better advised to just transfer the few fish she had to other tanks.There was also a coffefolia anubia in there that was growing pretty well but was covered in bba.I dropped it in my tank last night thinking my sae would maybe like a snack and today 24hs later its leaves are perfectly clean.If I would have known it would have been this dramatic I would have taken a before and after pic.There isnt a spec of bba left on any of its 10 or so leaves that were once coated.I knew my sae did a good job but this is remarkable.Now if they will just get the rest of it off the stems

They are impressive algae eaters, I keep rosey barbs in my planted to get at any brush/bba for the same reason.180G CA Cichlid Tank(coming soon)| 90G SA Cichlid Tank| 56G SA Planted Community| 50G (undecided stock)| 20G Planted Nano Fish

Floruish works well on removing BBA. I posted a small little thing about it in the algae section :P
