I missed this when first posted, so I'll comment now.

Raising pH will make ferric iron less soluble. Is that important? i do not know.

Adding peroxide likely does drive Fe++ to Fe+++.

Does a pH change alter the Fe++ / Fe+++ balance? It might, but I'm not 100% sure what controls the equilibrium ratio even if the oxidation is faster at higher pH as your link shows.

I'm not sure on the temp effect.
Thanks for taking the time to give a not-simple answer.

Old thread I know, but I'm curious if you ever dosed H2O2. I've been battling, and am about to try it but am slightly terrified. I've read alot of hit or miss so still trying to decide if it's worth it.

I dosed it. It seemed to work for a bit, and then it didn't. Also seemed to make some corals mad, but didn't kill any of them. Though I did stop dosing after a couple weeks.

Dosed phosphates, nitrates and silicates for 6+ months until my phosphates and nitrates were constantly reading worryingly high numbers and I had green stuff growing everywhere. Got a tang and greenstuff is under control. Cyano showed up and I let it be and it faded away.

If your tank is too small for a tang, you may have to find other herbivores.

But it also kills both of those and can damage other micro fauna
Used and recommended h2h20 and nothing but success reason why the low dosage
