You aren't wrong. Ostis bloom in spring in natural areas with considerable macroalgae, and I'd imagine considerable pods.
I'll point out your dinos were ostis, and mine were mostly amphidinium.
And you fed live phyto to increase pod population while running UV to hurt dinos (i didn't understand live phyto + uv at the time, now I do). I wouldn't say pods had no effect.
But, I would agree pods can't outgrow a dino bloom. Especially if their food source is contracting while nutrients are becoming dino-friendly.
