Last time I asked for help was when my tank was full of dino. Now it is only on the sand bed and I am unable to eliminate the problem. Can you please help with with identification? https://photos.app.goo.gl/CRw4if2Xw7Tq3Us18 Sorry for the quality, cheap microscope and lack of knowledge how to prepare a good sample. From the behavior of my dino I am leaning towards Amphidinium since its only on the sand bed and it looks like it goes to the sand at night because strong UV installed in the tank did nothing.

I believe it is the same strain I am struggling. As @taricha suggested in one of my other threads it is large cell amphidinium dinos.
I have started to treat my tank by adding phyto from algae barn (they have this ocean magic mixture). Also, I have just ordered spongexcel to increase silica to introduce diatom hoping it will suck all the energy from dino.
