Question for Boomer , please.

I try to find up , how i crash my tank one year and 6 months.
I end up to have dinoflagellates , i lost all my corals , i try to find up , if Silica have something to do with this algae. I use to run ( a lot , 2 times a week Diatom Vertex Filter ) , now we know Diatomaceous Earth ......."of a powdered media, made of almost pure silica manufactured from diatoms - the fossilized skeletons (frustules) of fresh water, unicellular algae." C/P
That one (contain ......SILICA)
Second , Fix it Stick ( PUTTY) , this also contain ,Magnesium silicate hydrate and more Crystalline silica , some chemicals 65997-17-3.
I use this Putty a lot, those may help to get Dino ?
I know i make a huge mistake , i remove most of my Pukani rocks and i keep only Tonga, for some reason , i lost the immunity of the tank, you think those 2 product may be also a problem ? Diatom and Putty .

Thank You.
