Scrubbed the crap out of it and let it soak for 4-5 minutes. The next day it was pretty much yelling thank you!!
I have 1 candy cane that has algae almost covering the while thing except for the head .
It doesn't look happy at all .
I was going to try placing it in peroxide and scrubbing with toothbrush ,
Is there a proper way or anything I should watch for ?

I would even two parts water. One part h202. Maybe drop it in so it only goes up to the heads. I did that with mine. Just leave it in there for a minute. And if it handles it well. Do it again in a week or two. Maybe leave it in longer. But all algae will die on it. After its been dipped. Just put it right back in the tank

I put my frags in a container of water, and take macro shots of them with my camera. If I don't see pests, I toss them in the tank.
See here the eggs on this frag?

Wait till you get flatworms and you will start dipping before putting any corals in your tank.
