Well, I’ve been dosing 10ppm per week of NO₃ and 2ppm per week of PO₄ for some weeks now, which is the same 5:1 ratio that gave me tiny amounts of BGA previously. The result? No BGA. So the result is a bit inconclusive. I can’t say this experiment supports the idea that BGA is caused by the NO₃ : PO₄ ratio.

I had BGA in my tank but lots of water changes, consistent syphoning and 1ml of eacycarbo a day seem to have put a stop to it..

Hi Folks,

I have more to add to this thread when I get a moment. Tomorrow, perhaps?
