Question How strong an Excel solution to spray on plants for BBA?

Fighting BBA, have already trimmed some leaves, raised my light, and stopped doing too frequent water changes (was going every other day at the office thinking I was helping - too much of a good thing)

Seems to have stopped or slowed the growth, now I would like to do a minor re-scape. As part of it, planning to remove plants, trim a bit, mist with Excel in a pump sprayer, (wait a few minutes?), rinse and replant.

How strong should the Excel be, straight out of the bottle, cut it 50/50 with water, weaker? Would H2O2 be better?
