I'm a fan of the "dirty" method as it helped me defeat my Dinos. Albeit it resulted in an algae break. Finally getting the algae under control....dinos are back :-) Employing the dirty method now simply by overfeeding, but in a much more controlled manner.

My (dumb) question is - will running my skimmer, dosing carbon, or doing water changes undermine the "dirty" method? Can I do any of those to help water clarity (like carbon) but not sacrifice the beneficial life that's keeping my Dinos at bay?
