Re: BG algae and trace elements

I had a tank go completely bg algae. I added a dose of Excel and sheets of bg 
rolled up. I vacumed out all the mess and have continued excel and no more 
bg. I have a herd of snails in the gravel and when conditions get bad they 
slide up the sides for a gulp of air. I dose again and they go back under. 
Someone explain, please.
