It's dinoflagellates. It's a protozoa. Remove excess silicates by running carbon and do a water change. I would also recommend doing a blackout for a day or two.
The orange/brown cell in the middle of the second pic is the only thing that's clearly dino.Hopefully those pictures worked
I would suck it out with an airline hose during water changes. You can read up on it, but it will hopefully go away after a while. I would not run gfo unless you are very experienced and testing phosphates frequently. If you strip your tank of phosphates using gfo, then then your dinos could take over and then you’d have a bad problem. I’ve been thereWater changes, lights out for a few days and run GFO?
You are going to get lots of conflicting advice for sure. Cyano is tough to eliminate. I do think it’s good to check your nitrate and phosphate levels. I would also beef up your CUC some and possibly increase flow in your tank. Manually removal is also a good thing. How old is your tank?ok so now im confused here. Im watching FishofHex on youtube about nitrate and phosphate dosing. He said if you have algae in your tank "DONT DOSE!" I need to check my phosphate and nitrate levels but im guessing they are going to read zero from the Cyano?
