Dude peroxide might kill the fish! I would do a huge pwc, wipe the glass, and make sure the light is not on to long! Also you may need to buy a uv sterilizer. I have never seen a bloom that bad!

No proxy doesn't hurt the fish at all. As no effect on fish.

And water change doesn't work. He said he clears up for a day or two and comes right back

Green water is always a light issue. Its either getting sunlight from somewhere or has too much light above it.

Hydrogen peroxide is a legitimate algae treatment method, but not for green water. I've never heard if a fish dying from peroxide.

Oh cool. I thought it would kill the fish. Will it kill shrimp?
Also if I were you I would seriously lookminto the lighting. If you cant change the problem (direct sunlight from a window) then you are seriously gonna have to invest in a uv sterilizer...
