how are the plants doing? are there any bga on the plants? how much bga can u manually remove? usually you can start a siphon with an airline and guide it with one hand to suck up bga as you manually rub it off with your other hand.

The plants are doing awesome. There is some BGA on the subwassertang(SP) and the peacock moss. Hm...I have a small airline tube I can use to siphon it

hmmm... the susswassertang and the peacockmoss is a little tricky. I forgot u had the susswassertang in there...can u move them to a place where there is high flow?

if you do get a syringe,
here's a solution for your next water change...
take out the betta
take 6mls of H2O2 and inject a bit directly onto the BGA...make sure the light is on without the mesh...
dont dose more than 6mls!
make sure u have lights on the tank~
you should see the bga bubbling.
After 10 mins turn the filter on full blast and do your regular water change. let me know how this goes.

dont apply H2O2 to the susswassertang as that will melt it. lol

I am going to use gentle water on both the peacock moss and susswassertang. My sister works at a pharmacy so she is getting me an oral syringe to use it on the BGA. It's also on the micro sword, can I use the peroxide on them? Or will it kill them?

Seriously, I would've never thought of peroxide as a killer of BGA
