Here are my questions:
1. Should I do lights out for 3 days when I dose hydrogen peroxide? I did 3 days lights out about a week ago, but the dinos came back.
2. Do I have to take account for the rock work and really only dose like 2ml of hydrogen peroxide?
3. How long should I dose for (how many days)?
4. When should I do water change to get rid of hydrogen peroxide? Or does it become like pure water after a few days and lose its effectiveness?
The h2o2 will be in the water so lights out should not make any difference since the dinos should not have to be in the water column.
OP have dosed h2o2 at double and triple the recommended dose.
I dosed for 10 days.
h2o2 is very unstable and will dissipate quickly, make sure you use fresh h2o2 as it can dissipate in the bottle.
Avoid water changes.

Lights out and h2o2 had no effect on my Ostreopsis Ovata.
