I saw a few videos on youtube, they use h2o2 for dipping corals. Does it work on all types of corals? Does it really kill all types of pests and algae? can it be used with seachem reef dip?

Yes/no(no dip kills eggs, but if your looking for a catch all dip, Bayer advance soil and turf insecticide is a major favorite among reefers)/yes
More than as a coral dip i see h2o2 used for treating dinoflagelattes (by dosing it straight into the dt)

Haha i know the bayer dip sounds wierd but if you google it, it is really actually very common

It kills some pests and most algae, but the algae can grow back and it doesn't kill pest eggs. Bayer dip is much better imo.

I seriously didn't believe people were dipping their corals in bayer... I personally do it with every coral now, even the $500 frags get a Bayer bath.
