Question Do you think I killed off BGA?

So I broke down and took out Sardine the two shrimp and the snail for a deep clean in my 5 Gallon natural planted tank. I drained out all of the water and sprayed H202 all over the tank to make sure it got all around the tank and onto the algae. Than I cleaned off the glass with a sponge and filled it back up with the same water (he just got a water change yesterday) and placed everyone back in. Do you think that will take care of the job? I am so sick of this Algae that I am pulling out my hair! x_x I did not squeeze out the filter yet.

thanks,
Tree

That should kill all of the BGA that the H2O2 touched, but there's still going to be some of the bacteria somewhere- even if you can't see it. So it could come back, but that will help for now.
