Peroxide?

by Marsha
(US)

I read where you said using hydrogen peroxide is good to get rid of algae. Does it have to be food grade? How much do I put in my tank per gallon? I have an 80 gallon tank and a 150 gallon tank.

I was the one who was trying the organics, it did not work at all like you said. We went back to nutrients.

Answer from Stella/Simon:

Hi Marsha,

You do not need "food grade" peroxide. Just get the cheap kind from the drugstore. Use a couple tablespoons for 80 gallons; double that for the bigger tank. Keep it simple!

Hope this helps,
Stella

Food Grade Peroxide
by: Bob A

I need to respectfully disagree about buying the cheap drugstore hydrogen peroxide. The difference is is that there are chemical stabilizers in the drugstore peroxide that you do not want in your food which is why there is food-grade peroxide. Well I agree that food-grade peroxide is more expensive and you need to figure out the ratio to the 3% hydrogen peroxide, it is worth the cost and trouble.
