Hi all, Very new to reef keeping so please be patient. I believe what I think is a Dino outbreak. Previously Nitrate and Phosphate where undetectable which I think caused the issue. I looked at some of the "brown " stuff under a microscope . Is this dyno ? Current Nitrate is 2ppm and Phosphate is 0.1ppm, what higher levels should I be aiming for ?

agreed it's very likely dino. Can't say what kind, because the resolution on cell shape is too small.

Do you think there are benefits to turning your skimmer off for periods of time?
