Once I got the water good I did add some fish and inverts. I added 2 designer clowns , exquisite fairy wrasse and a fire shrimp. Unfortunately after a few weeks I had dinos show up in the tank and have been trying to get rid of the ever since.

Its been a while since i posted last but here is a FTS not much to see as i have still been dealing with dinos/cyano/gha. I had initially wanted all this to clear up before i added and coral but it just seems its a back and forth battle between dinos and cyano. I did end up shutting down my frag tank and moved the corals there were left into the DT. I have been trying to deal with this the natural way. With elevated Nitrates and Phosphates. Its been a year the tank has been up and running and i finally broke down and did a chemiclean treatment. It cleared up the cyano for now but the dinos are now showing back up on the sand bed.

I think you have to use Kalka. to increase PH up to 8.6 keep it like that until Dino die.

Good luck man. Keep fighting the fight because you learn a lot from these kind of issues which only help out in the long run.
