Questions regarding the H2O2 dip
Based on previous threads, I have seen that many of you have successfully eradicated stubborn algae through spot dosing with excel/H2O2 as well as adding various concentrations of such treatments through the water column. I have not, however, come across a lot of information with regard to dipping heavily infested plants into H2O2 alone. There is no way for a newbie like myself to properly gauge the range of sensitivities experienced by different species without damaging my plants; which is why I defer to your good judgement (I have a a 5 gal so I do not have many plants to spare). This is my second post here, and I have to say I really appreciate all the helpful information you all have provided--especially those substantiated by science! So:
What is the minimum amount of time that I can subject my plants to a 3% dip (topical H2O2 purchased at CVS) without damaging any plant tissue?
What is the best method in regards to removing cladophora and BBA type algae from the aquarium?
