    i was reading an old thread and I came across someone recommending using hydrogen peroxide to prevent eggs from getting all fungusy. I've never herd of that before. Is this common, safe, and or effective? If it is safe and effective what is a recomended dosage?

    Lots of Angelfish breeders use it instead of methylene blue. The dose they use is 2 mil per gallon and re-dose every 12 hours.
    Works just as good as methylene blue. Also works good on that black algae.

    It's important to keep redosing it. It has a very short residency time.

    Cool. Thanks. I just got two viable Angel pairs and I was doing some research before I have eggs and not after I found them For once.

    Another option is Jungle Fungus Clear tabs that you can buy at Walmart. I put the eggs in a gallon jar with 1/2 a tab. Works great, turns the water blue, stops fungus, and doesn't harm the wigglers.

    I use Moroxy made by Mardel works great.

    I have been using Jungle Binox for a long time now and it works really well. (It's acriflavin based). Not sure if it's still available as my jar has to be 10 years old.
