The effects of the toxins produced are debated, but there are theories.

One is that their purpose is to stunt the growth of their predators.
This fits our problems at eliminating them just fine.
In my tank SPS don't grow, the predators are missing and dinos dominate.

Another is that dinos use the toxin to find each other for sexual purposes.
This also fits perfectly how Ostreopsis sp gather in my tank.
The fission is the fast division, but fusion is for genetic variability.
