Default Small Dino out break

I've been running zeovit for approximately 8 months, and I've had great success. I'm still only dosing the standards.

My system is around 60 gallons

.25 ml zeostart 2x daily
3 drops zeobac every other day
3-4 drops sponge power every other day
3-4 drops zeofood every other day

I'm running 250g of carbon in a bag in my sump baffles, and 500g of zeovit in my reactor running at 60 gph.

Recently, I noticed some of my softies closed up, and took a closer look, and started to see a few dino bubbles on the sand and rocks.

I tested my water for NO3 and PO4

PO4 was .03ppm
NO3 was undetectable

I'm not sure what is going on.

Any ideas? I'd like to get it straighten out before it becomes a bigger issue.

Thanks.

I had a similar issue... started Zeovit... progressed well, then developed Dino issue.
I tried everything from cleaning rocks to 3 days lights out - it always came back within 12 hrs.
I ended up doing 10% water changes and heavy sand siphoning everyday for 2weeks. Now I only need to do it twice a week.
I also changed all my RODI filters to make sure source water was perfect.
Was a battle I fought for months. Siphoning & water quality did it for me.
Good luck... Dinos are a pain!

I'm doing my weekly wafer changes, and the outbreak was pretty small, and it seems to have subsided for the most part.

The other thing that may have been causing it was my zeolites where due for a change. So I did that this morning, so we'll see.

I would not do that think about it your own immune system uses h202 on germs in your body but it does not attack your own cells.
It would kill your corals at the quantity needed to kill off the dinos
