the UV was not stopped altogether. Just for 24 hours per the Seachem Stability instructions to allow the spores to dilute and turn into bacteria and then make its way to rocks or sand. It is so the UV doesn't kill the beneficial bacteria while in the water column. The UV was turned on again after the initial dose of the Stability was added and allowed to settle.

I am wondering if the dino's were feeding on the added bacteria.
