Yes 1 ml per 10 gallons at 3% h202. I would dose seperate from anything else and dose it slowly.

Si 1 ml for 20g of 6% hydrogen peroxide... I'll just try it now.

30ml/30g worked for algae on my FW tank... So I feel this is safe in reefs...

Over dosing can hurt . H202 kills one cell organisms. But at a light dosage it should not hurt corals fish and inverts. I actually dip corals in h202 to remove algae

Take the time and suck it out. Take a towel and put it over the bucket. I robber banded the towel in place. And then cleaned out as much as I could. Filter the dynos out. It will help with the process. Do it daily. And with everything else. It should be gone soon

Ah I forgot to give news.

- I dosed 1L/day of limewater to maintain high PH. (8.4 instead 7.9) (1 week)
- I dosed 1ml/day vodka straight when lights turn off (I keep dosing small doses at night)
- I raised the actinic and lowed the white leds for a week, now it's back to normal settings
- I used a turkey baster to put dinos in the water column, so they get trapped in the HOB filter
- I replaced the carbon to starve the dinos as much as possible
- I cleaned the filter pad often
- I did a good sand bed siphon
- I raised Mg to 1500ppm too.

Result: No more traces of dinos. I'm happy And coraline is starting to grow everywhere since I increased the total led output.

Now I have a little bacterial bloom stringy white fuzz algae... I think it's due to vodka dosing. Easy to get rid with the turkey baster, does it means I should lower vodka dosing ?

Anyways, I'm blind dosing vodka, as I don't have PO4 or NO3 test kit. A friend will come test it this week.

Vodka can create bacteria blooms. I would maybe try stopping it all together . Maybe slowly or just stop using it.. I'd go get some Bloody Mary mix with some olives !! Dose vodka in there.

I won't go far with the rest of the 40ml vodka in that bottle....

I'll stop vodka dosing... and take a PO4/NO3 test in some weeks.
