Need help Dosing hydrogen peroxide


Recommended Posts

So after killing my tank buy trying to kill the flat worm I am now having a problem with hair algae. I have tested my water and everything is perfect so I don't know where its coming from. 


I want to start Dosing hydrogen peroxide but don't know the mixture or what type of peroxide to use so could some one please help me out.

Well some kind of nutrient is spurring the growth so it's being used by the gha making it appear like phosphates and nitrates are at a good level,


So we need to figure out source of excess nutrients. I have never dosed hydrogen peroxide other than spot dosing to kill turf algae.

I've heard that the algae consumes the phosphates, causing your tests to be inaccurate. I had a green hair algae outbreak and had ideal water parameter tests too. I added some more snails and hermit crabs to the tank and added a bag of Chemipure Elite in my filter sock. That fixed the hair algae issues over a week or two... definitely worth a try.
