Has anyone had experience with dipping favia in 3% h2o2? I have some type of algae growing around it, possibly bryopsis. Yay. I noticed bubble algae on my zoa frag the other day and after doing a little research and per Billy Pipes youtube video, I dipped the zoa in 3% h2o2 for 1 minute, even though he said you could go up to two minutes. I'm not gonna lie, I thought I killed them. They retracted super tight and were almost white. Within 2 hrs they were starting to peek out and the next day they were open like nothing happened. I've read a few people have done this with acans so I'm wondering would a favia be able to handle a h2o2 dip? I'm thinking no, seeing as how it can't retract inside itself like zoas do. Any thoughts?

Do you think that live rock is more beneficial in sump than it is in the main display tank?
