Startee feeding heavy to try and get my wrasse to eat. Algae is mot likely red cyano (which i tried to suction up) and bryiopsis.

I am thinking of ChemiClean and Reef Flux.

I am a pro chemical guy. This all stems from my screw-up not using the correct solution to dip.

Looks like dinoflagellates on that birdsnest to me.
Why do you thinking dipping would have stopped Dino’s, cyano, or bryopsis?
As far as I know there’s no dip that will keep those out?

I thought it did? I assumed it wasn't just for critters.

Peroxide i think do kill algae if you use it as a dip. I'm not sure about the effectiveness.

Back to your chemical warfare, i suggest do tackle one thing at a time. I had similar issue a few months back. What worked for me is blackout & UV for Dino's Cyano, wait ~1week before hitting the tank with reef flux.
