Yes weirdly the water quality is still pristine but the Dino gravitated to the corals and one corner of the sand bed on the surface ...

Tomorrow we are doing a full clean out - new everything will post updates after we finish ...def will be staying away from anything bonding material related (had some discs on rocks) and keeping sand-bed thinned out ... other than that I learned nothing about controlling Dino as most things did not work , not even my power being out and the tank temp plummeting to 60 killed it off so who knows ...very frustrating

Just finished last night the tank clean out , sand and rocks replaced completely and tank cleaned thoroughly ... will go about 10 days or so fish-less and see what transpired before getting back in ...

Here is the tank , i tried going for the separate islands ...also did a different sand makeup (not crushed coral) ...I have to say I miss my rock creation before I had some great shelves and the coraline growth was exceptional ...

Here what I’m doing to assist the new setup process ...

I’m not feeding
Water parameters in check
Only minorly dosing part A, B and Mag for coralline growth
Adding N03 4ml for preventative measures a day
Lights on 8hrs if that
Good circulation
New filter media and chemi pure
Skimmer barely pulling anything out on high since no waste being produced ..
Temp 78
Put new blinds up by window adjacent to make sure no artificial lights
Have two hermits and a blood shrimp from clean out I carried over doing fine

Leave it alone for a month, don’t touch anything just do weekly water changes and top off. See if it would go away on its own. Cause for me, it went away after 2-3weeks after the new tank was up
