Using hydrogen peroxide to kill algea.

Hello, I have newly set up dirted tank and now am experience some issues I believe to be some kind of hair algea. It seems to spreading. I was wondering if any of you had used hydrogen peroxide to kill algea. I know people use Excel but I do not want my Val to melt back. Does h202 work? How should I dose it? What percent should I use? Etc etc. Please let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks.See More

"Adding worm castings=nitrates. More plants and water changes are a solution.  How high are nitrates? How many plants do u currently have? Drop in on chat and we may be able to give more detailed advice once we have more information from you."

Help! High nitrates

I have recently set up a new dirted tank using earthworm castings. The tank has been cycled but I having issues with high nitrates. There are no fish in the tank. Just plants and some snails. I'm wondering if the earthworm castings are leaving something into the water column. Any suggestions are welcome.

Hello. I have recently set up a tank about 3 weeks ago. I used earthworm castings for the dirt and gravel to cap it. The tank is cycled but now I am having issues with high nitrates. There is no fish in the tank just plants and some snails that came on the plants. I have also having some issues with what looks like green hair algea probably due to the high nitrates. I was wondering if maybe the earthworm castings are leaching nitrtates into the water. If so will this subside or should I tear…See More
