Easy, add a SAE or a few of them. Lime dips work for the plants as do bleach
dips. But if you have a wet hand and it goes into the other tank etc at a
later date guess what? Transmission. Got to be very careful for a long time.
Add some SAE's to both tanks. Work on the cure rather than avoidance
techniques. That's a losing battle otherwise. SAE's will help if you have
BBA, no question about it. Add em to both tanks.
