H2o2 vs bba

Will dosing my 55g planted tank with H2O2 kill off the BBA and if so how much should I add?

You're going to have to spot treat it. I wouldn't just dump it in, I don't see that working out too well.

I've been using 1mL per 1g when I spot treat my tank.

Now, spot treating will only help with getting rid of some. What you really want to do is find the root cause (fluctuating CO2 values) and correct the issue.

Can you tell us a little bit more about your setup (lights, co2, how long lights are on, fert schedule, light and co2 timer schedule)

So far I have alliminated 1 10000k t5h0 bulb, leaving 1 6700k t5ho going (about 1 month ago), light runs 4 hours on, 2 off and 4 on, dosing Seachem comp twice a week. Added another power head to up the current ( again 1 month ago) and did away with DIY CO2 (2 weeks ago). Anything else I can do before I rip all the plants out of the tank to do a deluted bleach dip?
