Just curious... How often are you doing this?

If you're doing it more than once in the same tank, there is a basic problem
with your tank environment.  Of course if one is happy killing it off,
seeing it eventually creep back, kill it off again, see it eventually creep
back, etc. then why not?

Keep your tank and plants healthy and you won't need to dump medications
into it..

Subject: [APD] BGA

what most members seem to sumise is that BGA is an algae. It is not it is a
bacteria and therefore an antibiotic is the way to go.  Other means do
remove it eg. light removal and or rapid water changes or just changing
conditions. These do help but it is hit and miss. Using antibiotics is
simple and trouble free. Not sure on a past post of cloudy water as it in
such a small dose and in capsule form. ie about 1/2 teaspoon in a 6ft. Tank.
Why make things complicated as with antibiotics all your plants and fish
suffer none and the tank is clear in a few days.
cheers Neil.

PS jus tell your doctor you have a virus and then treat your tank.
