6hr light cycle, dosed every 2nd day for 30 days (15 doses), increased my wet skim as instructed. 12ml for 60gal.

Advantages: None

Disadvantages: In the first 15 days, serpent star disintegrated over a week and died, both peppermint and cleaner shrimp died (had them for over a year), and soft corals look terrible, not to mention it's upsetting my Sebae Anemone. GHA came out of nowhere and diatoms increased! After initial 30 day (15 dose) treatment, I gave my tank a rest and let it recover. A month later I tried a 2nd cycle of 14 doses over 28 days (and that finished my bottle). No impact on dinos, but this time they didn't get any worse. I am not convinced this product works... either that or maybe I don't have dinos? Based on the appearance and photos presented to other hobbyists, everyone has confirmed they are dinos. The invert safe advertising is B.S. Fauna Marin in an email told me that Dino-X is incredibly hard on some inverts. I would not use this product again.

This eliminated the dinos after 2 weeks and I followed the instruction closely. I wish I used this product way earlier as I tried all different methods with no success including 3 days black out and other doses. This product rocks.

I had chemipure on hand for the last stage of the treatment, anticipating a cyano bloom towards the end which turned out to be helpful. I treated with chemipure for the final 3 days of my 15 day treatment then did a 20% water change and turned the carbon reactor back on. I couldn't operate the skimmer at all during the treatment so take that into consideration in case you have an overstocked tank that's sensitive to oxygen drops. I have three tunze 6055 powerheads in a 40 gallon breeder so oxygen isn't much fo a concern for me.

Advantages: Easy to dose. SPS corals didn't react negatively. Removed 90% of the dinos within the first 10 days

Disadvantages: Dead dinos led to nutrient boom which in turn led to cyano bloom. soft corals retracted a bit towards the end of the treatment.

Followed directions and this product quickly removed hair algae from my aquarium and had a slight impact on the Dinos but did not eliminate them. Unfortunately this product either killed or is killing almost all my soft corals. Even almost 1 month after stopping treatment despite daily water changes my corals are on a downward spiral. Dinos are healthy and well however. Fish were not impacted at all at least. Would not recommend if you have any corals.
