I did an experiment today, I vacuumed the surface layer of my sand bed into a 5 gal pail and pour the contents of the pail through a 10uM filter sock, squeezed a sample out and put it under the microscope. I found 0 dinos but
I did find a lot of critters in the form of pods, shrimps, etc., very small small in size. I found a dozen or so in a drop of water.
I think this is a key to eliminating dinos.

I would like others with microscopes to do the same type of sampling of their sand and skimmate and post their results.
