    Finally (8 months later) I Won the battle!!!! ..by out competing dinos.

    The main solution it's promote other live organisms thrive in the system, by raising nutrientes, dosing bacteria, and stop things like carbon dosing, trace elements and Water changes.

    I believe the exact brand is SunSun. But it’s similar to any of the 55w pond UV sterilizers you can buy. They are supposed to be good for 2000 gal ponds soooo.....

    Just I reduced my new coral into my tank anyone know what it is and why there is a clear sac or bubble there? The guy at my LFS was new and didn't know what it was and I'm wondering if it's an issue

    I am in the dino fight now for over a month or so.

    Did anyone find that Microbacter 7 helped PROMOTE Dinos? I am on day 9 of dosing and the dinos are worse than ever...much more since I started Microbacter.

    Today I am buying more chemicals to raise Phosphate and Nitrates to try and help per suggestions...or buy Dino X.

    Tried:
    Blackout: 3x nope
    Diatoms breakout: nope (may have not given enough time?)
    Over feeding: nope
    No water change in 6 weeks: Nope
    Almost an entire bottle of H2O2, daily dosing for 3 weeks: nope
    Lights on for a couple hours a day: nope...lost two corals and anenome is sick,
    Coralife UV with new bulb for a month, blowing debris 3x daily: nope
    Raised PH to 8.8: nope
    Microbacter 7 for 9 days: nope (promoted it)

    Next steps...dose to raise Phos and Nitrates....or buy Dino X...I will give it another month or so then take down and sell. I have a couple trips coming up, and being gone 2-4 days will likely destroy my tank if I can't stay on top of these things.
