"Clean" is not free of plankton or microorganisms.

I have a lot of planktonic life in my tank and no dino infestation. I don't use algae killing chemicals.

I use UV because it targets free swimming nighttime organisms like dinos while allowing benthic fauna to thrive in their place.

I use skimming because it's a natural scrubbing action and exports solid and liquid waste.

I use iron based GFO and the dinos don't come back.

I have no algae other than coralline in the DT and the macro in the sump.
