Hey guys, i just did this earlier today. i looked into getting an ozone machine for quite some time. thus said i got curious and ended up hearing about hydrogen peroxide. now its been some time thinking about this and just a hour or so ago i used SWAN HYDROGEN PEROXIDE = stablized 3%Hello Everybody,
I’ve read before that oxygenation plays a role in coral growth. It seemed to have a positive impact at normal levels but reacted negatively at higher concentrations. I always assumed this to be the case with long term dosing. It most likely over-saturates the water and chokes out micro algae but over time can affect the zooxanthellae as well.
I’d like to know:
Would dosing over the counter 3% hydrogen peroxide help to achieve a better balance (assuming it is not 100%) in water oxidation?
What devices/techniques can be used to measure the saturation? I know there’s ORP probes but I am not sure how that equates to saturation.
Could the same results be achieved with water flow and/or a bubble skimmer?
For those who keep macro algae/algae scrubbers how can you tell the oxygen produced by the plants is/isn’t producing excess oxygen? You hear all the time that these are supper effective at pulling out nutrients but do they expel too much oxygen in their anaerobic process?
Just some shower thoughts.
Let me know what you think!
dosed directly into the power head pretty slowly, id say it took me about 1min to fully plunge down.
waited 5 min then dosed another 1ml with the same timing.
after 56min my apex a3 pro orp probe (roughly 4 months old) read 294. right before dosing it read 263. orp probe is set to take in data at 1min intervals.
i became very curious of this today in the morning because i just changed 10% water yesterday around 7pm and typically my orp varied between high 290's to 335.
eshopps s200 skimmer w/ co2 scrub
and eshopps 75 gal rated HOB skimmer (getting ready for ozone, highly recommend using seperate skimmer according to BRS)
gfo then carbon reactor
return pump set to about 1600gph (3200 max)
just now dosed 1ml x2 and waiting another hr for the results then going to wait quite some time as i dont want to overdose
im pretty confident im very close to 163 gallons of total system water. when i set this tank up i did measure every bit of water i put into and over the time its been up (16 months).
75 gal sump
i am trying my best to keep a good eye on maybe any smell and color change occur.
my current goal is to really use this affectively to break down all the crude in my sand bed and potentially really increase the management ability/level of fish ailments.
from what i read and watch on youtube and some forums there could possibly be so much more benefits. if only i had more money and more equipment to really take this seriously, not that im not taking this seriously atm, i just know my anylisis could be magnified to a much larger scope of detail.
i suppose thats what we have BRS for?! lol XD
