Isn't Zeostart a concentrated carbon?

The majority of this post also helped me.., didn't get rid of them all - however it has allowed me to control them. Sadly I didn't find the 72 hr blackout did anything... they came back after 2 days. I even tried blackout every 3-4 weeks for several cycles. I hate the things lol

I lowered my zeostart from .5ml 2x daily to .3ml 2x daily and I still have issues.

I have posted a short video how they look like over here:

Just klick on the first picture in the thread to view the video.



If those are Dinos those cells move in circles.

Hi Alexander,

I have always been lead to believe the algae issues I had were Dinos - due to the stringy appearance.... the phenotype was practically 'as described' After looking at your quotes post I took a sample from my tank and put it under our work microscope to get this..... is this Dino?

Yesterday my girl got a microscope and helped me with this, so here is mine:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUh-20yPZ24






On the first link (video) you can see clearly they are moving in circles, so I assume they are indeed dinos, the situation is worst than ever now.
I turned off lights, started increasing pH, increasing dKh also (it were on 6.0, now on 7) and found some problems regarding CO2 that I am addressing.
I hope the increase of pH can solve this problem..


I am noticing the Astrea snails are voraciously eating the dinos, can I buy more snails? Are they going to die or not? It's been 5 days the snails are eating without any problems..can that work?

Also...can anyone ID my dinos?

From the video I would say those are Dinos. Here you can find more general information about them:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dinoflagellate

They are toxic so usually if snails do eat them they die.

Nothing moving in circles... looks like I'm going to have to brush up on some cytology or at least try looking at another sample.

Than it should not be Dinos but I can also not tell you what it is exactly, sorry.

I think it is worth to take a look.

After reading all these threads it's a shame we can't send off a sample like you can with triton testin and get an accurate analysis and then a dosing schedule. I know it welcomed but everyone one has an opinion of what a photo looks like an ether all seem to be diffferent.
