bummer found this one perished today. Yesterday I did a no peroxide swap. Today the wrasse was belly up.

I need some clarification on the purpose of this thread.
These are fish that have been put through peroxide treatment; successes and failures. Did the fishes have something that warranted treatment? I’m assuming it’s prophylactic. How many of these cases were treatment of actual disease and parasites?
What is the effectiveness check? I don’t see any follow up. Did the fishes die shortly after? Did they show signs of illness after the bath? How soon after? Were they cured of whatever ailment they had? How long did they stay symptom-free?
I’ve read through the thread and it just seems like there is a lot of information missing.

@mikeintoronto The purpose of this thread is to help determine which species are tolerant/intolerant of a 30 min, 150ppm H2O2 bath. Nothing more like which diseases peroxide cleared or long-term health effects. It's just a (necessary) first step towards furthering H2O2 experimentation.
So you put them in there to see if they live and if they do you move on to regular treatments? Copper, CP, etc.? Or is there an expectation that it is doing something?

Ultimately we hope to get away from things like copper and CP altogether, but the first step is to figure out what fish can and can’t tolerate baths.

I can’t speak for others here, but peroxide has completely replaced my QT process at this point. I do a single bath and then into the DT, where I run UV and dose peroxide for a month after the addition. I think for most in this thread, the baths are part of the hybrid TTM process, which is a copper/CP-free protocol.

It depends. You have options:
  1. You can use the H2O2 bath as a "pretreatment" (to knock off some of the parasites) before beginning Copper, Chloroquine, etc. to ensure 100% eradication.
  2. You can use it as part of "Hybrid" TTM (2 peroxide baths spaced 6 days apart has been proven to eliminate at least velvet): https://humble.fish/community/index.php?threads/hybrid-ttm-to-treat-all-parasites.1765/
  3. You can do just one bath, and then observe the fish to see if any symptoms of disease present themselves. I recommend using black mollies to aid with disease detection.
We know that a single H2O2 bath provides temporary relief for Velvet and Brook. What we don't know is which diseases (if any) can a single H2O2 bath completely eradicate. It's still experimental; it takes years to prove repeatability.
 
150ppm for 30 minutes:

Hippo Tang - 1x
White Tail Bristletooth Tang - 1x
Striped Fang Blenny - 1x
Bella Goby - 1x
Melanarus Wrasse- 1x
Picaso Clown- 1x
Storm Clown- 1x
Flame Angel- 1x
Juvenile Emporer Angel- 1x
Starry Blenny - 1x
Lubbocks Wrasse - 1x (died 2 days after 2nd bath as part of hybrid TTM without apparent cause)

Not yet! Wanna be the first to try? ;)

H2O2 should be an ideal treatment to use on sharks, rays and eels. Since they harbor very few parasites to begin with, the peroxide bath should knock off any that are lingering.
Maybe after the 1st of the year I'll be ready 2 travel down that route again, I do miss having 1 in my tank
