Hi jacky
I think you may have misunderstood me
I don’t have Dino’s
I have just read that many people experience Dino’s because of a nutrient bottom out
I was curious when starting zeovit what can you do to prevent this from happening
I am very happy with my system so far

You can dose ZeoFood later once the system runs nutrient poor stabile to improve coral coloration.

Hello Rscott , Zeo Food can be added after the malnourished water quality, 1 drop / 25 US gallons, can start from 2 times a week, and observe the appearance of the coral. I used Zeo Food to observe that the color became more intense and the coral tissue was healthier/growth.

Currently in your tank stage, I would recommend you to use Zeo SpongePower instead of Zeo Food, which is great. If you get Zeo SpongePower, [dose: 1 drop / 25 US gallons, every other day], I believe it is ok. Positive biological side effects

We can use a toothbrush to clean the affected area and see if things continue to deteriorate. What kind of material is it? (Sorry, I read it on my mobile phone, it is not very clear)

Hi jacky
That is the issue
I don’t know what it is
I scrubbed it off. I don’t know if it’s Dino or cyano
But something is not good

Hello Rscott, I think those are not Dinos, it looks more like Cyanos. When you use a toothbrush, are they like "mud" scattered?(Sorry, I am really not sure, the phone is not very clear)
In any case, siphon it, it looks like bad bacteria and sediment, if you are willing to use a toothbrush for cleaning, and ZeoCoralSnow mixed Zeo Bac (2:1 dose) try to do it for 10 days to see if things are getting better. Is it only affected by this area? What kind of rock is it?
