Targeted hydrogen peroxide works. I used it for a month and there was no rise in nitrates, nitrites or ammonia or any other ill effects people will claim will occur. And it kills GHA very well.
I used 3 ml per 10 gal total water volume or about 40 ml in my 110+sump. I even carefully used it around my Montipora and killed algae there. I had other issues and the algae came back but hopefully a new robust CUC will take care of that.
Peroxide works immediately and you'll see bubbles for on the algae. Use it when the lights are on as that helps break the peroxide down into water quickly. I just stringed it into the algae and the next day it was white.

I can vouch for the peroxide as well. We use it at work occasionally and it does wonders.

You shouldn't need to make it up. Unless you have access to 24% H2O2, in which case that will need to be reduced to 3-4%. But the normal household hydrogen peroxide is already at 3%. Hair product H2O2 is at 6% and needs to mixed 50:50 with RODI. Then just suck up the right amount (4-6 ml for your 20 gal system volume) into a syringe right out of the bottle (for the 3%) and squirt it on the algae. Simple simple simple. If you use 6% then suck up 2-3 ml and another 2-3 ml RODI water then squirt that on the algae

Awesome that makes sense. Could this possibly kill gsp too if I injected it right into the mat?

I don't think so. I tried to kill off some Xenia by dipping it right in 3% H2O2 but it seemed to like the bath. All my LPS and shrooms seemed to like it.
