If fact I've got slightly more of them right now than last 12 months.

This means we can't say that recycled skimmate will help with a dino problem.
We also can't say it's useless until several others try this out.
I think we might be just culturing our own dinos, they probably get sucked into the skimmer and survive quite happily. Why'd it work for Monti and Cal? Maybe the predatory bacteria just aren't there in our tanks while they have them. Skimmate from someone else's tank would be interesting to try.


28g cube, CF 105watts! Tunze 9001. Tiny frags: Euphyllia, blasto, ricordea and a rock flower anemone. Lost fish and inverts due to ongoing outbreak of dinoflagellates.
