Algae Turf Scrubber. Never had an issue with Dino or algae ever again after installing it.

No! There's a very intensive thread on the "other" forum.

They can give you a run for your patience. I went through this a long time ago and it felt never ending. I put a soda-lime reactor (think I still have some sodalime left) to raise the PH. At the time I believe Gary recommended using kalkwasser to get the PH up - same net result. I did the blackouts and honestly I think the did more harm than good.

If it happened again I would get the soda-lime reactor running and suck out as much as possible with a small tube. on memory I believe there was a consensus on not doing water changes but I don't remember why. There is also H202 dosing which I believe I did. eventually it went away but it wasn't quick or painless.

for the H202 search for this thread:

I tried:

100% topoff with kalkwasser
Fauna Marin AlgaeX
Blackout periods

It went away eventually (6 months) and I'm not sure what really did the trick.

BulkReef sells the AlgaeX which is now branded DinoX
