I'm not saying it can't be used that way, but you proved the point made about efficiency - energy consumption. Since they aren't really built for that, they work harder.

Is black diamond GAC good or do I need something else?

Also, with peroxide, does it need to be pure from the bottle? The one I have says 3% and the rest is purified water.

It's not just on sand. It's on rocks, on corals, pumps, filters.
