      Not sure about what you mean by that's seems like a lot, lot of what? I put 2-3 tbls. of peroxide in 5 gallons of my nute solution in a 10 gallon res. whenever I perform a nute change as a precaution. I'm not trying to add oxygen
      , the air pump and air stones provide plenty of oxygen.

    I have added a couple of tablespoons in my 10 gal. dwc every nute change as a precaution for nasties and I wipe down everything I use with it tent included during cleanups.


      Quart of peroxide per gal of water seemed like a lot that's what I meant lol

        some might think quart per gallon alot but use that formula for when you are having issues with plant it will help alot for every time aplication use 1 cup per gallon ive done so with great results.
        if your air pump is good use less
        that is if you use a 3% pyroxide not the concentrate

      I also use Promix and perlite and couldn't get a handle on the ph for that mixture until i read what Green75 wrote about using ph at 6.0 for a target range instead of 6.5 like i was told at the local shop. Since changing to 6.0 Things have been much improved! So if you are not trying to hit 6.0 then give it a shot, you will see results!
