Sure. I am thinking of adding it in my sump but you could hand it up on the
wall and drip it in a small tank or dose it manually with your doses of
liquid iron etc to se if that may work better.
It shouldn't hurt much if I overdose? What would the symptoms of an overdose
look like? Whiter shiny leaves with no coffee stains? Under dosing would not
give much if any effect but perhaps it may. Guess I got to try it to find
out. Maybe this will be chemical alternative to adding O2 gas at night like
Amano does. I wonder if he has less algae as a result of using O2 at night?
Does anyone see a problem with this set up of H2O2?
