I've got some Anubius and Java fern that is a bit algaeish... I want it to disappear and thought I'd play around with hydrogen peroxide.
Anyone here use it for dipping plants in?

Oddly, Ive found dosing more fertilizer has ridded my anubius of algae growth. Happened over a couple of months though and touch wood is doing well now with no algae on any colonies.

With the Peroxide, I've never done this myself and not sure I like the idea personally - although it probably is a well used mehtod in the hobby.

I have used H2O2 to dose my tank from time to time.
Spot dosing was usually done on the BBA.

Also used spot dosing in the tank. Works pretty well on BBA (on mine should fizz, then go pink in a day). But only used it on ornaments, fine leaf plants I've found don't like it.
