This was done to see if the dinos disliked the additional ammonia.
They don't seem to care at all, but there is a pleasant side effect going on.

The rest of my SPS, fingernail sized brown leftovers, are showing their polyps for the first time in months.
There is some color also showing in their tissue.

My tank has been going through phases like this for years so ...
I was reading something yesterday where the person raised their nitrates to beat back the dinos. http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/sh....php?t=1620464
