    It is possible that some macro algae get affected by Dino X. For that reason, we recommend removing this algae before starting your first dose. A couple weeks after treatment, you can re-introduce the macro algae.

    I have a 120 gallon mixed reef with total water volume estimated 140 gallons. What I believe were dinos were only on my sand bed. Tried reduced lighting, vacuuming and hydrogen peroxide for a few weeks with no help. I used DinoX exactly as per instructions for a little over a week now and tremendous improvement. Good stuff!
    As a sidebar, I am seeing an opaque, slimy bacteria film building up in the sump, floating on top of water. Good Bad or Ugly? Any recommendation on appropriate action? Thanks in advance Fauna Marin!

    Glad to hear you're liking the results!

    A buildup of bacterial film does not happen often when dosing Dino X and could be normal depending on the amount of nutrients in the system. Not long after your treatment period ends, the film will disappear.

    Dear Fauna Marin,

    I read both the English and German instructions of Dino X just to be sure I'm doing it right... but unfortunately, English and German instructions are not entirely the same.

    1)
    The English version says NOT to exceed 21 days of treatment. This means max 10 dosing cycles.
    The German version don't tel anything about the max period of treatment.

    2)
    The English version says to restart waterchange and using active carbon again after 2 days after the last dosing of Dino X.
    The Germain version says to restart regular maintenance after 1 week.

    3)
    I have another question: do you recomment extra (big) waterchanges after the Dino X treatment. Or is it OK to just restart weekly 10-15% waterchange.

    Thank you

    The link goes to instructions for AlgaeX but I need instructions for DinoX; are they exactly the same? Thanks!

    I would not reintroduce anything back in the tank that could have dino spores left on them.
