So I have recently been battling with this type of algae but I don't know which type it is. I was thinking GSA but it always seems to already on the edges of the leaves first. Can you guys point me in the right direction to getting this under control? Seems to appear on the lower leaves of the s. Repens and on my Anubis, even where it isn't getting much light.

No they don't come off. Only solution so far has been to cut off the affected leaves, but at some point there are only going to be tops left.

I would assume co2/flow problem since you have bba + gsa.

We would need what is your current fertilizing routine, light/co2 schedule and a ph profile to point you towards the right path.
