I think we also connected the dinos to bacteria.

So, depending on who's winning the bacterial war, that may influence the ability of dinos to gain ground.

I don't know if there's a bacterial strain that stacks the odds in our favor.

Have we tried nuking with antibacterial (erythromycin) and/or antiseptics (hydrogen peroxide) and then adding a heavy cocktail of bacteria from known sources (Fritz TurboStart 900, Safestart, MicroBacter, Cycle, BioSpira, Colony, Stability, TSS, etc...)?

It would certainly take out the red slime, but the unknown consequences (side effects) could (& probably would) wreck the tank. The biggest hit would be to non-nitrifying coral-biome bacteria that wouldn't come from a bottle.

If it's do or die...
