Usually caused by excess light. Usually a combination of level and hrs.
When first set up...

You need to stop water movement/ turn off pumps,filters etc.
Then you need something which can measure what you are using.
A syringe will do this. So will Pipettes.
Use no more than 1.5 ml per gallon for the total amount that you dose.
Best to direct dose on a limited aria so you saturate it.
So no more than 15 ml for a 10g tank. Let sit for half hr. then turn everything back on.
Repeat every other day if necessary till dead and do the next place.
Up on walls is harder as it runs down and doesn't stay where you put it.
Bubbles are supposed to be there.

It caused a headache in my guppy tank which received only ambient light. Only thing I can think of is the spores were on the wood I put in there for bristle noses. Since the tank was being used mostly as a holding tank until warm weather, as soon as it was feasible, I emptied it of fish and blasted the whole thing with h2o2. The light has been on constantly for several weeks with no recurrence. Think I got it.
