What do you mean exactly by that statement?? You have one side lit for 9 hours and the other for several days in a row?? Am I understanding that correctly??
That is BBA by the way and there are ways to fight it. So no your not stuck with it. Well to a point, there's no way of getting the Bba that's there gone besides removing the effected leaves/plant but you can stop it from spreading.
It all comes down to lighting and nutrients. So with that said we need more info.
How long are the lights on for durning the day? What type of lights are they? What type of bulb(s)? Do you use fertilizer for the plants? Does the tank get hit by sunlight? Is this a standard 48" 55 gallon? Is the whole tank effect by this or just some plants?? Any info you can think of will help aid in you stopping the spread of BBA.
