    Thanks for the warning Mick, good to know. I really don’t like that sort of behavior in my tanks(if I can avoid it?) no matter how good looking the fish. I’ve lost several gastros in my RT and I suspect it may have something to do with the sewellia.

    As for the java fern being indestructable, not in my tanks. I can’t grow them! I buy nice big ones and they just slowly die off. At best the dying leaves produce tiny plantlets that stay tiny a scraggly. There’s something missing in my water.

    Nice one Mick! I love the p. fasciata, never seen them here. Handsome fish!

    Dave, have a look at this thread form another forum. I haven’t actually seen my stiphodons eating the BGA in my tank but they are getting fat!

    No dead spots Dave. It’s a 20 long with a manifold & AC 70 attached with 2 intake sponges. Also AC 70 & 50 HOB filters running. The 70 is on the end so the flow is the length of the tank. It grows right in the flow on anubias, wood, etc. Even on the intake sponges.

    The linipar I have are about 2″ and haven’t grown for the year that I’ve had them. Great little fish. I’d like to get more but they were a one time occurrence at my LFS, sold as “Hong Kong plecos”.

    “How about flow – thats usually the main culprit.”

    I’ve read this many times but the worst problem I had with BGA was in my rivertank. The tank is a torrent throughout. The only way i got rid of it(temporarily as it seems to be returning after a several months absence) was by treating the tank with kanamycin. This tank does have low nitrates.
    I seem to have it in all my tanks in varying degrees. Some fish seem to feed on it. I have liniparhomaloptera disparis disparis in my 75, they gather round when I’m siphoning the edges of the tank exposing the BGA.
