    Dinoflagellates vs. UV

    So I ran an in tank 9 watt UV with a flow rate of 211gph, so about 4 tank turnover's an hour. 40 watts seems reasonable but I agree 1500-2000gph seem too high. I think 25watts with a flow somewhere in the range of 800-1000 should do it coupled with the other steps I took (i.e. 48 hrs black...

    If you are in the north bay, it a cool shop to visit!

    Just wanted to give under the sea aquatics a shout out. Stopped by there today and they definitely have the nicest selection of coral north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Also was able to pick up a good sized piece of Leng Sy monti cap, one I have been looking to acquire for quite a while now. Thanks!

    Dinoflagellates vs. UV

    During the the 7 day schedule listed above I cleaned the glass every other day to try and get dinos off the glass and into the filter sock and skimmer; also should mention I ran my skimmer fairly wet. Normally I clean my glass twice a week.

    Dinoflagellates vs. UV

    Well I’m glad to follow up on this email with good news. I seem to have beat the dinos and here is what worked in my situation: 48 hr black out with UV running the whole time, no feeding Then 5 days of only blues on my radions at 20% power, feed every other day Then slowly phasing the whites...

    Dinoflagellates vs. UV

    ⬆️ This is basically where I’m at, looking at my tank this evening I realize it’s actually not that bad so a little elbow grease, and a boost from UV should do it. Really appreciate everyone’s feedback, super helpful and I’ll follow up with a post of the results!

    Dinoflagellates vs. UV

    Me too, I used one on a freshwater tank many, many years ago with great success and figured there are multi benefits to using one on a reef as well.

    Dinoflagellates vs. UV

    Thanks for the feedback and Thanks for the feedback and indeed I was checking out the green killing machine unit as well as an aquatop unit as I didn't want to drop $200+ for a possible short term treatment; I'll definitely keep your offer in mind regarding the pentair!

    Dinoflagellates vs. UV

    Thanks for everybody's feedback, I'm fairly certain that they are ostreopsis because when I take out the filter sock each morning and rinse it, it appears there are dino coating the sock that have been entrained when they entered the water column in the evening.

    Dinoflagellates vs. UV

    Curious what folks experiences are using UV to tackle dinoflagellates? They are indeed dino's and while it's a minor thing in my tank and nothing seems to be out of balance (I have also eradicated them in the past using aggressive mechanical filtration, vacuuming, etc.) I thought I might try...
