I tried the GLA cleaner but it wasn't strong enough so I used H202 (Peroxide) and then bleach. The peroxide worked but the bleach really did the job.

Forgot to answer this - I wouldn't use DIY CO2 for this - only pressurized CO2 - I don't think it works with low pressure (DIY, if I understand correctly) CO2 systems.

All, thanks for the feedback! I was concerned about the pH being an issue and I'm glad it isn't.

I don't mind if they breed - My Barbs and Apistos are busy making babies so why not.

Just an update.
