First thing you need to be sure is that those are really Dinoflagellates, from the pictures it looks like something else to me. Do you have access to a microscope ?

Do you dose just Zeobac, ZeoStart and SpongePower ?

G. Alexander,

I do not have a microscope. The sand bed looks like dino to me but the rockscape has that thick "wet bread" look to it. I have never dealt with this before. I listed earlier in the thread all the chemicals I have here. Maybe it would be best to review that list and give me a new dosing regimen and some way to diagnose that algae issue. Thank you!

You are not a dino, algae problem bak+snow, check the zeolite flow, the current two corals have not been a problem, and many water changes, confirm np. In addition, the last picture of the worm is a good food for many fish. It is also a phenomenon when the general tank starts, and it can be said that the water quality is too fat. Read the kz guide first.

It feels like a certain overdose, stop all nutritional supplements, return to bak start3 sponge power, confirm the amount and flow of zeolite, and the amount of activated carbon flow, with daily snow treatment, skimmer adjustment, filter replacement, water change and sand extraction Dirty inside. And at the same time confirm that sg mg ca kh is within the normal standard and detect the np value. Until the first stage is completed.

Consider the start of the Stage 1 ZEOvit method. Basic 4 is used to reduce nutrients in a balanced manner. With the consumption of nutrients and "reserves", the coral becomes brighter, the appearance is lighter, and the dose of corn becomes.

Kz guide first read

Default Dosing

G. Alexander,

I started back to the basics.

.75ml zeostart
3ml coral snow plus
3 drops zeobak twice weekly
3 drops spongepower daily


Since then the tank has shown even more issues. With the blackout the tank did not rid the issue as well. I have attached more photos to help show the issue. All parameters are the same as last time I tested.

Can you please post a full tank shot and a good picture of your sump ? Can you also tell us more about the dry rock you have used ? They look really clean after being over a year in your system already which is unusual.

G.Alexander

Read your story, the last #23 picture is because the carbon source is excessive, I believe that n&p is not detected at the moment, and the bacterial ecology is out of balance, you really need some live rock to help lead the balance, or give the bacteria ecological food Complete a good bacterial cycle. Objectively, it is replaced by brown algae or green algae. Another way is to add Bacillus subtilis. Stop adding carbon sources for 2 weeks. Try it out and see everything will improve.

Probably too much organic matter, plus a large number of microbes die...
"Heterotrophic bacterium" caused by the massive growth of different bacteria

I would try to remove it for a couple of days to see if this makes any difference with the algae. Such kind of material do often leach softeners or other unwanted substances which can cause such kind of algae. It might have a different reason but it might be worth a try.
