Any one ever tried dosing hydrogen peroxide in a zeo system?

Yes it does not work.
At the same levels that are effective at killing dino are the same level of bleaching corals

am guessing effectively you are doing nutrient control.. so should your conclusion be running poor nutrient and very low PO4/NO3?
aggressive WC also reduce trace elements if the salt mix lack these elements..

I've been battling Dinos (the Ostreopsis variety) for the last 8-9 months. In my case the outbreak started after an accidental carbon overdose (before i was using the Zeovit method) which caused a nutrient imbalance. To beat Dinos i tried a 3 day black out, a 5 day black out while treating with Fauna Marine Dino-X and increasing PH. All of these helped reduce the Dino population but they soon returned with even more vengeance. A friend recommended the following regime which seems to have worked wonders. I finished the regime 2 weeks ago and so far no signs of dinos.



In my experience Dinos do well in ULNS environments and they will return if your nutrients are out of balance and/or there isn't enough fauna bacteria/biodiversity to out compete them.

Yes, I, I have experienced it. But it is not recommended, it affects the bacterial biology, and the appearance is like the initial establishment of tank, and the situation will become quite bad. Brown algae / nutrition rise / coral discomfort / loose tissue / even coral TN stress.

Don't know if the Dinis problem is solved? If I understand, then I suggest that you should first try to replace the hose and turn off the lighting. Use black cloth to completely wrap the main display system and the sump (this is the most efficient and successful method at present). If this is the main core (Dinos), then I believe things will get better soon. Don't forget to keep the NSW basic water parameters stable during the period (including potassium)

Try to do this instead of changing too much.
This is the safest way

Sorry i was wrong, "any plastic material" instead of just hoses (usually hose materials)

Increasing the pH looks good, and it seems to be the case. But if "the root cause of the problem" persists, then even after trying various ways, it still recurs (maybe)
