Using antibiotic, you can remove BGA. It will kill bacteria but antibiotic also known to kill useful bacteria. So always try natural remedies to remove algae.
Low nitrates is not the cause of BGA. Low nitrates slows plant growth, which results in higher concentration of nutrients in the water column, which results in BGA growth. It's actually excess levels of trace elements that induces BGA growth.
