    excel or metricide works
    Turn off all filters and power heads& let the water sit for a few minutes, then using a syringe treat any BBA by dispensing some as close as possible. If you really have it bad ...removed as much as you can physically then use above treatment. It will turn ink in a day or so after it is dead. Follow up by changing out your filter, make sure you rinse with tank water. HTH
