so turns out what i had/have is not BBA but greenspot algae and hair algae, i get the green spot on the glass within a few days with the old conditions and same with the hair algae except on the plants mainly the moneywart and whats left of the creeping charlie and the rotella. today i did a major 75% w/c to get rid of cloudy water added a normal dose of excel and a single dose of flourish and also laid some cardboard strips across the top. ill post some pics when i get the uploaded.
forgot to add also took apart the filter completely and scrubbed everything down, the bucket of water i used was black afterwords.
