He had no problems with that tank as I understand it. I have started tanks with similar methods - result no ugly phaseThat could have been one of the problems, at the start of a tank you may need to add ammonia to feed the nitrifying bacteria, nitrates are the end result of the nitrogen cycle and can be utilised by Cyanobacteria and dinoflagellates more easily.
