Keep reporting since we know they like to come back.

I've got used sand and fresh rocks coming next week.
If I get it similar results we may be on to something.


The theory is simple enough.
Loss of plankton can leave an open door for dinoflagellates to take over.
Give plankton a helping hand and dinos will fade away.
That's right mate. It's all about plankton and every small critter that would keep those dinos in check.

I'm four months ostreopsis free. I achieved this by encouraging planktonic life (skimmer off for some days, phytoplankton dosing and heavy feeding). Nitrates and phosphates are still undetectable but I have a pretty high nutrient flow.
