I should buy a bunch in bulk from BJs, bottle it, slap on some "Super-powerful Algae Killer" labels and re-sell it

Did you ever smell coral RX? It sure reminds me of a famous household product!
maybe a few drops of food coloring...

Not that I know of, but I was commenting on the "bottling peroxide" idea.

Let me tell you how good hydrogen peroxide is...... I had some rocks that no matter what I did had tons of green hair algae on it. I mean long. I decided to take a few pieces and leave them in a tub filled with salt water, hydrogen peroxide and a nice power head. I covered and let sit for maybe 3 weeks. When I went back to get the rocks out, they were pearly white! I mean it killed and removed EVERYTHING! Check out one piece. The blue lights don't show it justice.Click image for larger version

If it was covered, the algae probably died due to lack of lighting. I'm sure the peroxide helped, though, and bleached the rock, too.

A "standard" H2O2 dip, from what I've read, is 4:1 tank water:peroxide, dip for 3-5 minutes, then rinse. The algae will die off in 3-5 days.

I've tried just putting the rocks in a covered tank with the power heads and didn't get anywhere near this result.
