I accidentally tried something similar. I have a HOB fuge and I was leaving the light on 24/7. The light I was using was shining very dim in to the tank during lights out and it made them worse for me. When I replaced the light with one that shined in from the back side the dinoflagellates would go free floating and would eventually take hold in the sump leaving the DT clear.
