Tom Barr has already responded with excellent advice.

In my experience, I watched the BBA disappear when I increased the Nitrate 
from less than 5ppm up to about 10ppm. Right now my tank requires 3/4 tsp 
KNO3 per week to maintain that level, despite having more than 70 well-fed 
fish in 72 gallons.

Remove what BBA you can, and follow Tom's advice. You can win.
