As much as I hope it's the smell of Dino death, I'm not going to hold my breath... Not after reading what so many have gone through.

Currently going with a clean approach (which I now understand isn't very successful). When this fails me, I'll be getting dirty with these suckers.
Smell is kind of underrated in reefkeeping.

It doesn't get mentioned anywhere, but dinos *do* smell weird. I can smell them when I have the top off my aquarium.

Macroalgae smells weird too. And when the LFS is fragging softies it reeks.

Clean method has worked for a couple of people! They go for removing sandbeds, adding UV, ozone. Don't jinx yourself, you may not have to.


28g cube, CF 105watts! Tunze 9001. Tiny frags: Euphyllia, blasto, ricordea and a rock flower anemone. Lost fish and inverts due to ongoing outbreak of dinoflagellates.

Current Tank Info: 28g aio, 105 watt CF lights, no sump or skimmer. 2 sexy shrimp, tiny frogspawn, tiny toadstool, tiny lps. Started Feb '15
