^^ Yes, it is very important to keep that in mind. However, H2O2 has already been proven effective for temporary relief of Velvet as per this study: https://www.researchgate.net/public...n_the_Pacific_Threadfin_Polydactylus_sexfilisFor the casual reader this is not something that is tried and true yet. Just a discussion.
I will also say that I've now run over 50 fish through the 30 min, higher 150ppm H2O2 bath with amazing results. These fish all had Velvet, Brook or Uronema, and the ones that weren't too badly infected (i.e. died) were all clear (and are still clear) following the bath.
But this is all still experimental. For those just wanting healthy fish in the DT, follow the standard QT protocols e.g. copper, prazi, metro, etc.
