Very interesting. I guess then that all our hypothetical solutions are just that.Some say dinos starts becouse of lack of biodiversity in the tank, lack of predatory creatures and people say to me ... buy copepods isopods ... To control the dinos I show them this video
I took it some time before the dino problem started, there were so many of them I was scared to look at the tank in the night and dinos killed them all, I cant see any now. So I think using isopods or amphipods to control ostreopsis ovata wont work
Do Dino's just stop. Give up. Is there some DNA mechanism that turns off. As opposed blooming they recede.
If so what is that trigger. How is it supressed.
Dirty tanks help.
- why. Dinoflagellates consume nitrate as food source. Just like they do in corals.
If it were that simple dose potassium nitrate and wait.
As you point out. It decimated your pods.
Adding bacteria ie microbacter does nothing. Why would it. It's a thousand times smaller than a protist.
I guess we are no further to solution than we were twenty year ago.
