I have been battling the dinos for awhile now I am 100 percent sure they are dinos I have done a lot of research but I cant seem to identify which type they are. They do not string out or slime up. They just stay on the sand bed. They clear up at night and come back just as strong the next day after the lights have been on for awhile.

I am looking into getting a UV sterilizer and trying the dirty tank method. I am also willing to go as far as removing the sand bed at this point.

I have a 25 gallon cube with a 10 gallon sump.
2 clownfish
1 Royal Gramma
1 Cleaner Shrimp
4 blue legged crabs
3 snails

My tank parameters are:
SG 1.025
PH 8.0
Nitrate 10-15
Phosphate 0.03 but it hits 0 after 3 or 4 days so i dose Brightwell neophos. Not sure why this happens.
Calcium 430
Alkalinity 7.8
magnesium 1320-1350

If anyone can get a good ID on these things that would be great thank you!

Prorocentrum. I did a UV sterilizer and resolved within a week. I ran it at night only for 3 days, then 24/7 for a few days. I also mechanically blew it with a turkey baster at least once or twice daily. (btw my nitrates and phosphates are always high-ish)
