Hi, my 1000x microscope just arrived (I doubt its 1000x but wtv)

Pics with the bigger ones is the old tank infested with dinos, pics with the smaller ones (same magnification) is the new tank which sprouted Dino allllll over the sand in 1 day about a week after i transferred 2 corals from the old tank.

So far its been 2 days that lights are off in the new tank with a 55w UV directly in the DT but theres no visible improvements really

Looks like osteoporosis
Prepare by starting with a water change and blow this stuff loose with a turkey baster and siphon up loose particles.
Turn lights off (at least white and run blue at 10-15%) for 5 days and at night dose 1ml of hydrogen peroxide per 10 gallons for all 5 nights. If you dont have light dependent coral- turn all lights off.
During the day dose 1ml of liquid bacteria (such as bacter 7) per 10 gallons.
Clean filters daily and DO NOT FEED CORAL FOODS OR ADD NOPOX as it is food for dinos.
Day 5,, you can start with blue lights - ramping up and work your white lights up slowly

There’s a shortage of mb7 in town. None of the stores have it lately. I bought the fritz live bacteria today. A lot more expensive.

thanks for your advice. Should I be running the UV overnight when I dose peroxide?

Also if anyone else can confirm it’s the osteo strain it would be great! Thanks

My main issue is that I might have 2 different strains? In the old tank it’s the big ones which are a bit on the sand and all over the glass, with the new tank (the ones that are smaller on the pictures with the same zoom) are all over the sand only
