Hello guys I haveing trouble fighting ostreopsis dinos.....I have a uv sterilizer aqua advantage 2000+ 15 watt..... would this uv sterilizer be strong enough to help with the dinos....I can't afford to go out and buy a stronger one.....the tank is about 65 gallons before live rock and sand.....how much flow should I push through the uv...

Ostreopsis is easily killed with uv. I beat them 90% with a 24w green killing machine in a 125 gallon. How bigs your tank? Edit 65 i see yes thats good.

Have you identified them as ostreopsis? Like with a microscope?

I dont think those are ostreopsis they look more like small cell amphidium or something else. Ostreopsis spins usually.
