Question about Oxydator solution

Recommended Posts

Squiggle

Hey All,

Just a quick question, does anyone know what concentration of H2O2 the Sochting Oxydator solution is & is there a way to make up your own solution? If so, how effective is it compared to the Sochting solution? :encouragement:

Hey All' date='

The formula/mix on the bossaquaria website and aquotix website....depedns on the H202 concentration i.e. 35% ....

Thanks BB, those are the pages I was looking for :encouragement: What about using the 6% H2O2 you get from the chemist, would that work?

Have not used those, and unsure whether they're food grade. Economically buying a 35% or 50% H202 makes the formula cheap !

You are off your rocker at the moment aren't you, hahaha :victorious: Sounds like the shoulder surgery went well :encouragement:

In the links that BB posted, it tells you how to make 6% solution from 50%, so a liter would last a long time :congratulatory:

hi guys, just be sure to only use food grade 35% H2O2!!!!!!!!!!!

the premixed solutions of 6%, 3% etc have binding and stabilization agents in them and are not proven to be safe for your aquarium.

This information is direct from the manufacturer.

I thought this might be the case, thanks Dean! :encouragement: I think I will just get a bulk order with the boys & probably get a liter or two of the Sochting stuff :victorious:

Squig if you need some urgently I have some of the small bottles (4.9% H2O2 82ml) that come with the mini-oxydators you can have.

I'm all good for the moment, I've got about 3-4weeks worth left but I will have to do something about it soon. I hate leaving it till the last minute, been caught out too many times before :encouragement:

I'd personally rather buy refills from dean than mess with other solutions to save a few bucks.

Why risk the life of a few hundred bucks of shrimps an plants and the health of your tank for a few dollars ?
