Don't beat yourself up, sometime we can't help it and just follow the urge to buy/try something new. I consider it as a part of the never ending learning process.

Sochting Oxydator is definitely 100% safe, it won't kill any livestock and produces just water and pure oxygen. The secret is in the ceramic ring/bowl, it contains magic dust (I accidentally broke mine and it is full of black stuff, carbon I suppose) which breaks down molecules of hydrogen peroxide. If you want to extend the refilling period, you can use just a half of the catalyst. Obviously it will also limit the amount of oxygen produced, so..choose your poison I guess

No no no not half, may double it. Do need the O2. Although they seem fine right now as is, so maybe one day may add the second.

A magic disk, so more like Krull than Voltron lol.

Today I noticed that fish in my nano tank are gasping for air at the surface in the morning. I guess that a lot of plants and higher water temperature caused O2 depletion during night. So I refilled my Oxydator, put it in the tank again and fish started to swim over the tank in just few minutes. I am not using the supplied disc due to space constraints, but it probably doesn't make a big difference as water is full of dissolved organics which break down H2O2 just as fine. So I'd say that Oxydator has some advantages after all, especially in certain "critical" situations.

I also found my old Chihiros doctor, out of curiosity I plugged it in for a test. It produced a little cloud of bubbles and quite strong Ozone smell, so I removed it immediately and put it back in the drawer.
