Which onei want to check in with you guys and can confirm. vibrant kills osteo dinos.
i used uv and peroxide and even changed out my entire substrate. 3 days a week with dark blue lights. still....it persisted.
1 dose of vibrant rocked it all out. it DID irritate all my millies or anything with polyps out. and that initial dose made them pale out like they had no nutrients in the system. no losses.
so +1 from me. vibrant will be one of the few additives that filled a gap in my arsenal.
Thanks, it's a beast to kill but seems to be low toxic so that's a plus.That is a protist species that I can not locate an exact name. This is one of the most common found in our aquaria.
I am working with a lab to hopefully start sending them samples for ID but this is a work in progress.
i mainly dosed vibrant because i had some weird weird weird hair algae.Glad to hear that Russ. I have osteo and haven't been able to get totally rid of it with 14 doses of vibrant so far. I do have some other algaes it has taken care of and some it may be working on. Was your tank clear of algae? Wondering if it's going to take awhile because of the other algae in my tank. As UWC says it seems to work on certain types at a time.
Also did you dose any peroxide at the same time?
There are a few ostreopsis to choose from
i dose 2 ml per hour on the doser for a 300 system gallon tank.That looks like the ones I have. That gives me hope. Maybe I should try dosing peroxide at the same time.
I have some dinos and thinking of doing this but I have a nano tank where do I add the dosing fromI've been battling Dinos in my 180 for about a month and nothing really seemed to get rid of them. I tried all the usual remedies....carbon, GFO, kalk, EcoBak, wet skimming, various new additions to CUC, and periodic 72 hr blackouts... all to no avail. After the blackouts, it would appear to be gone, but would be back the next day by the end of the light cycle. I started dosing the recommended 1ml per 10 gallons and after just 3 days, I seem to be dino free!! I also noticed that some of the hair algae that was growing in my frag tank (all plumbed into the same system) is starting to die off. I'm definitely planning to start a maintenance dose in my system. I'll post if I begin to notice any downfalls, but thus far I must say that I'm thoroughly impressed! Thanks for the tip Troylee!!!
