Actualy, I believe it is cyanobacteria.  And you would be lucky to kill
off 100% with 1/2 doeses of erythromycin.  Even luckier to never have
it reintroduced.  Some BGA is med resistant -- perhaps a little in
nearly every batch.

It is easier to tame (good water & tank conditions) than to to
kill(literally eliminate).
