Can anyone identify this Dino? Best photo I could get with my cheap microscope. They don’t seem to be moving at all. Disappear from the sand a bit at night but not entirely, get worse throughout the day with lights on.

ID doesn’t factor in dinos cure attempts. What factors most is the gallonage of your tank

If it’s 40 gallons or below you have control options with a high degree of cure rates that large tank reefers don’t have. If you have a large tank, expect to see the range of results below from the huge dinos work thread, with a very very low cure rate we can see thumbing through the before and after pics.


=623 pages of work, no improvement over page one-ten results. It’s a stuck in place management option, reached its max.



Why would I say ID plays no role? Because even after getting ID as step one in all those jobs, the cure rate still isn’t above a few % out of 100. It’s not like we can search out an effective prorocentrum thread, vs an effective coolia thread etc. all dinos work threads that aren’t rip cleans have an extremely poor fix rate. ID plays no role in the 90% cure rates seen in any rip clean thread.

For a test, make an ID of your dinos with a microscope bought for the job, they need to see the cell morphology to classify

Once you get the positive ID, post for help in the nuisance algae forum and watch the pattern. Exactly like that thread above, you’ll be told to do things with nitrate and phosphate that will cause the counter invasion results seen in the thread above.

I would like to do a rip clean but my tank is about 50 gallons and food grade containers to hold all rock and livestock and make new saltwater are very expensive where I live. I’m currently dosing phos, nitrate, waste away and running a GKM UV.
