Anyone ever used DinoX at the same time they are running Elegant Corals Dinoflagellates regimen?

Desperately trying to rid my system of a dino bloom once and for all.

Any suggestions or tips would be much appreciated.

Dino X is vicious stuff - it nuked my tank and I've heard of it taking out quite a few others, personally I wouldn't risk it. Do you know what type of Dinos? Ostreopsis for example can be very quickly brought under control simply with much higher UV - I can't remember the exact wattage to litre ratio needed. Other types for example dosing silicates can resolve very quickly. Knowing exactly what you've got is the key to start.

On Facebook search for "Mack's reef...Dinoflagellates support group!" Under files there's a PDF doc - its got an identification guide in there and treatment for each of the different types

I wouldn’t mix Dino-X and the bacteria method. A 36 hour blackout before and after the bacteria method really helps. I use a DE filter before the bacteria treatment to remove as much Dino as possible. The daily directions aren’t really clear, make sure to dose bacteria and vodka with the lights on and feed the bacteria with a pinch of pellet food smashed into a powder on days two and three.

I tried dino x last year and after about 10 doses, I didn't notice any difference. I was so desperate for a solution, I combined dino x with a 5 day black out and it killed my torch, all my sps, and seriously stressed out my hammers. I wouldn't use dino x with any other treatments. I had success with doing elegant corals treatment 3 weeks in a row. My anemones got a little deflated by the end of the 2nd week, but they recovered fine.
