Ive been adding hydrogen peroxide to help with dinos, and its been working. But tonight I messed up and got confused and thought it was 3 ml per 10 gallons instead of 1 ml per 10. It i just hurt my tank and fish?
We have some seneye studies with peroxide showing paradoxical effects
not once has any practical range of peroxide been shown to negatively impact a biofilter though that rumor persists
of course anything we do impacts bacteria, a full water change when moving tanks to a new home impacts bacteria but we can see in pics it’s not a negative impact or reefers would be very unhappy after move jobs. Placing our arms and hands in a tank impacts bacteria, but not in a way they can’t adapt just fine.
matter of fact, peroxide dosing boosted oxidation rates for a few hours last we checked. (Aerobes like oxygen?)
it would be more accurate based on actual studies to advise dosers they may have just boosted their filtration temporarily but it w go back to baseline soon enough.
You should be ok, when I first started dosing, I went a bit high myself. I noticed the softer LPS like zoa's and clove polyps seemed a bit more ticked off for a while but they extended back out after a couple hours. The fish never even send to notice. Whether or not it impacted anything negatively at a more microscopic scale is hard to say. It certainly seemed to help accomplish what I was after though. I hear some have dosed that high, but it's something they seem to have gradually worked towards. You know how tanks dislike larger swings of anything.
