Hello fellow s.fl.'er

What is your fertilizing regimen? Look into this link about balancing your nutrients with your light and co2. Consider doing some form of EI since you have pretty decent lights.

I feel that H2O2 is a last resort. It works.. but perhaps too well as it'll get rid of some other things. You can spot dose (a limited amount!) with a dropper onto the leaf right before a water change if you want to go a little more conservatively. What's a limited amount? I figure an amount that totals to half of the "safe" amount of h2o2 from the one-two punch method mentioned above or less if you don't need it.
