So you have 1:1 H2O:H2O2... what concentration of H2O2? And yes, it will probably melt. A dip might not hurt, but all night is overkill.

ok well then lets do 2 hrs i will remove the hc and rinse at 9:30 and just for good measure i have added some other plants to the mix with alge to see if it works on them too this will be great if it works cause a 2 hr dip is a poc

I recommend you take it out now. put it in plain water and observe.
I've had almost an entire tank melt on me dosing at a fragment of what you dose...

That's way too much H2O2 and for too long. I've fried moss and java fern with concentrations lower than that and for a shorter duration.

10ml of H2O2 per gallon for 2 hrs. is my maximum application.

there really is no "if" lol.
usually at that concentration, you should only dip it for half a minute max

I wouldn't keep a plant in a 50/50 dip for more than a minute, followed by a rinse. Less for fragile plants.

Experimentation is good, but in this case I believe the results are predictable.

Is this for real? I feel like this is a joke post trying to egg responses from people. ok, if you are serious I would listen to what everyone is saying and pull the hc out now. The hc might recover but it will take a long time and much of it will be dead. I think u are going to have to start over...

you wont be able to tell right now, melt wont start until tomorrow, you will first see transparency in the leaves and then everything will rot. if it's bad, you wont even be left with stems.

i feel like this is all to real. it is done if it doesnt work. fine by me. im not squirting perioxide in my fish tank or doseing it. i wanted to see if this works. i have 3 more batchs to test if this doesnt make it. i will try again with less time or less peroxide but i wont know till tommorw like aokashi said.

i will find a reliable mix and dip time and that will be the alge treatment i will use from now on and probley most of u will thx me later
