There has been much speculation that peroxide destroys algae. I have not 
done any specific experiments to see if this is the case. Anyone?

The theory is that algal cells do not have peroxidase to protect them 
from oxygen radicals. That means they get destroyed while animal and 
plant tissue are not.
