just to be safe IMO.
Some corals are sensitive to this.
My urchins run TO it when I dose?
Still have all of them !
Seeing bubbles from application is a good thing!
I would pull as much as possible manually to help the peroxide work quicker.

Well I only have Zoa's, Shrooms and a Torch in there at the mo.

I will definitely keep everything off during application.

I can pull out as much of the actual GHA then all I have left is Bryopsis strands.

I'm assuming to dose the H2O2 around the base of the algae?

Get the peroxide right at the base yes.
If you do have bryopsis then RM shot you straight on the Kent MG

Update: so the H2O2 arrived today, I'll be trying it out soon.

Couple questions, should I turn off any pumps or powerheads before dosing?
And do I need to remove any chemical media such as GFO or Carbon?

Might want to remove your carbon while dosing, other than that, run everything normally.

Irritating GHA needs to be dealt with...

Right then.

Day 1.

I've done a sizeable W/C today of 2G and let things settle down a bit before the first dose.
I've also ripped out a LOT of GHA/Bryopsis.

I'm currently focusing on the main clump of Algae in the tank.

I've squirted 8ml of the 3% H2O2 solution (which REALLY didn't seem like much), and there is quite a bit of bubbling going in in the injected area.

I'll be following a schedule in the next week to see what I can get out of this stuff and I'll see what's what.

The schedule:

Day 1: Do W/C, dose 8ml.

Day 2: Dose 8ml.

Day 3: Dose 8ml.

Day 4: Dose 8ml.

Day 5: Blackout.

Day 6: Blackout.

Day 7: Blackout, W/C.

Repeat.


So far the Zoa's have closed up (expected) and the Shrooms have shrivelled (expected).
