 Kunal
 
 Bleach  straight  in  your  tank  will  kill  the  beneficial  microorganisms  .
 
 Bleach  is  Calcium  or  Sodium  Hypochlorite  which  does  not  contain  any  carbon  source.
 
 Regards

 Bleach  releases  chlorine,  which  is  harmful  to  fish.

 But  bro,
 
 You  could  do  the  necessary  by  using  Gluteraldehyde  Thumb Up  ,  if  you  got  friends  to  share  it  or  tanks  to  use  it.  It  must  cost  you  a  decently  less  fortune.
 
 What  more  it  works  as  a  source  of  carbon  too.  Smile  
 
 BTW  a  blackout  is  what  I  would  go  with,  with  any  such  arrogant  algae.sp
 
 Goodluck.

 Keep  the  plants  in  a  bucket  of  water.  squirt  the  H2O2  on  the  area  with  a  syringe.  leave  it  for  5-6  minutes  and  then  put  it  back  in  the  tank.  You  will  get  it  in  any  medical  shop  as  it  is  used   by  doctors  to  disinfect  stuff  ...
