It should do fine. I was growing the DHG belem without the aid of plastic wrap. Just keep the soil saturated and mist a few times a day.

So my CPDs look pretty pale and I never see them eat. For those that have them, what do CPDs tend to favor?

When I still had mine, they enjoyed freeze dried bloodworm. Try frozen/live foods and see if they react to that. Also, they feel more comfortable with plant cover.

I am not 100% sure, but I feel like I remember reading it is 1ml per gallon.

5ml is a bit much. Which plant has the BGA? Note, some plants might melt with H2O2.

I was talking about treating a specific section of the tank. I fill up the syring and squirt away. I squirt it on my fissidens and it was still ok. If people rinse their mouth with it, it shouldn't do much harm in the tank.

Good thing is after I got rid of it, it didn't come back.
