    I have several planted tanks, mostly not with many stems. I like easy low maintenance setups.

    Small change of flow has created a new play ground for the BN's

    After Sept tank maintenance went nowhere. Got busy with life and by mid November Lucky 13 has some serious BBA issues/.

    I stumbled onto the thread about BBA, bacteria and vitamin B12 on UKaps and that made me change change 3 things in Lucky 13.

    1) add two small SAE's
    2) increase fertz
    3) Add a truck load of aeration 24x7


    My BBA was extensive and the BN's did nothing to curb the growth.

    and I doubted these guys would make much of a dent ... it seemed like an H2O2 reset bomb would be needed.

    Tanks really was in a bad way - going downhill. 18 Nov 2018 added the aeration.

    To say that I am more than pleased with the result would be an understatement.

    So thanks to AndyMcD at UKaps for not only a great bit of writing and research, but being willing to share it with the world.

    I still have some BBA - and I think that is good, but the battle seems to be won.

    Not sure what BAR says about posting links to other forums.. the subject is:

    What exactly causes BBA? Part 2 - Bacterial imbalance

    I will PM you the link.
