To add H2O2 to indoor fish farm tanks during a power breakdown have saved many tons of fish for me. Its not snake oil at all

Sincerely Lasse
As if you don't have much to do - do you think it might be helpful to write up a little protocol of what / how to use H2O2 during a power outage?:). Please?

PS - on the oxydator - mechanism of action

1. With the Orange side - with the 2 holes down - which happens:?

a. The catalyst causes O2 to push up into the top - and the H2O2 comes out the bottom
b. Another mechanism.

I was not under the complete impression that the Oxydator released Oxygen into the tank - but rather - H2O2 - which is rapidly turned into H20 and O2 EDIT - pushes H2O2 out of the reservoir

Yest it release H2O2 out and it will come i direct contact with the secondary catalyst - the ceramic around the plastic bottle. Here - pure O2 will be produced. If the concentration and/or the catalysts inside the bottle is to many. The outcoming H2O2 have not enough contact time with the second catalyst and pure h2O2 will come out in the aquarium. This can be good when you try to defend a parasite or a disease.

You might find the screen shot of a reply from Uwe of Sochtting on the very subject that was sent onto me by the UK distributor to clear up any confusion on how an Oxydator works.

Thansk Lasse:). I Meant - once the H2O2 contacts the catalyst - it will then cause O2 be released - which will go upwards into the container - forcing H2O2 out. It seems like mine runs out quickly:)

Installed a model D in my ~25G total volume system, 6% with one catalyst. Some bubbles but not enough to worry...

Graph shows the spike in ORP when initially adding it to my sump. ORP has been hovering around 280 during the day.

I was wondering why there are 3 graphs with different spikes? In other words what are the 3 graphs you posted?

@CDNReefer got it. Wanted to show the time stamp for those curious. These aren’t important just showing an effect of adding the oxydator.

Same graphs , just look at the points not the number on the right
Sorry you lost me. all good - good luck with your oxydator

So you posted 3 different graphs - showing the same thing - (not sure how you did it - unless you had 3 different monitoring devices). I still don't get the POINT you're trying to make - so - the Orp went up - then went down.

He went from 289 to 370 with the addition of the oxydator. That's what I'm seeing. The point is it went up.

You all got me thinking again about the gallon of 12% I've got in my fridge. It's been in there for 6 months and I still have half left. How do you all generally determine if your peroxide is losing strength? A trending orp probe? The time in between refills? I see there are test strips available on Amazon.

Dont think you can. except there are calculators online. I have kept 12% for 6 months - and noticed no difference in potency - but not measured
