This is exactly what's happening for me. I lost no fish and velvet didn't progress. Dosing H2O2 (8-hour schedule) + running a 40-watt UV at 150 GPH has worked very well for me so far. It's been about a week, and I've yet to see a second outbreak. I noticed some secondary infections on my naso (second to breakout during the first phase) and lineatus (first to breakout during the first phase) though. Other than them, no one has shown any physical signs after a week of this approach. I don't know why, but the secondary infections seem to be disappearing on their own. Perhaps it's due to the UV + H2O2, or their natural immune systems are dealing with it.Basically the “result” that I saw was just that it didn’t progress and nobody died. If your outbreak is farther along, the worst affected fish may still pass, but you should notice that the outbreak doesn’t spread.
Well looks like my purple is improving but will see on the others. Since it wasn’t clear, is it 1ml every 15 minutes per X gallons or just 1ml period?Yeah, if they’re continuing to decline then I would get the overnight dosing going. If you can only do 9 more doses with your pump then just split the total overnight amount up evenly and I would run those doses at 30 min intervals (so it would be 9 doses over 4.5 hours instead of over 6 hours).
It’s double your normal dose, divided by however many intervals you can dose overnight. What is your regular dose right now?Well looks like my purple is improving but will see on the others. Since it wasn’t clear, is it 1ml every 15 minutes per X gallons or just 1ml period?
Either is fine, I originally was dosing into the tank near the gyre, and then later switched to the return chamber of the sump.
Excellent, I'm going to move this post to the peroxide tracking thread so that HF can update the OP.
Hi @JessicanEither is fine, I originally was dosing into the tank near the gyre, and then later switched to the return chamber of the sump.
Yes, I positioned my tubing so that it was just above the water line to avoid the chance of back siphoning. I found that if the tubing was against the glass, the peroxide ran down the glass and into the water with minimal splashing.
