Now we have to have theories on what is really going on.
I think that dinos can't tolerate their own toxins and it to be the regulating factor on their population densities.
I also think it is likely that they have no control over it and it is simply released when they die and come apart.
In the skimmate are loads of dead dinos.

In one of my tests I siphoned the dinos off the sandbed and added them later with "good" results.
Most of my dinos died and so did a few of my fish.

If this is true your green tea killing effect could be palytoxin rather than devouring organisms.

I like your tests, a lot.
