Im having a molt/fungus problem in my DSM Hemianthus Callitrichoides, and its spreading its fine white spidery threads into almost all the HC and substrate, and some of the HC are whitering already,

Should the 3% hydrogen peroxide being squached instead of plain water work?
I already moisted the tank with it, and heard the oxygen breaking already, i sust hope the HC wont die out of it but i dont know any other way :/

indeed good info, will be good for my plants when they arrive

For the HC however, seems i did more harm than good spraying with H202, vinegar should be better but now they are fragile

Search for a thread called the one two punch whole tank algae treatment. It suggests shutting your filter off to save your bio filter but having power heads/ lots of flow so the peroxide stays suspended in the water column. There is a good explanation as to why you want flow rather than still water. Then you dose excel to take care of the algae that the peroxide didnt get but weakened.

Have used 3% hydrogen peroxide at 2 to 5 ml per ten gal (10 hour's) to treat bacterial infection's in/on fishes, but peroxide makes no distinction between bad bacteria and good bacteria in filter.
Might be careful were it me.

Now I either spot dose with a bovine syringe with needle or remove the plant and spray - dwell time 1 to 3min. depending on the plant, then rinse.

When I spot dose I turn off my filter.

~ Any application should be brief then followed by flushing of the H2O2 from the plant.
