Did a trial of h2o2 spot dosing on a patch of heavily staghorn infested driftwood and the algae turned pink in about 6-7 hours.





I think the algae is dying and that’s why the color is changing. The Otos and the amanos are yet to clean this off.

Yes they turned white and the shrimps started picking on it.

Unfortunately I lost 3-4 Gertrude rainbows in the same time. They were also recently added. Not sure if it was related.

I did a water change after the spot dosing though. All the other shrimps and fishes are doing fine.

Losing the gertrudes was painful though. RIP.

White in the foreground which the shrimps are picking and pink in the background which will turn white in a day/2.
