  1. I went out of town for a few days to visit my parents in Chicago. I had a few setbacks and a medical emergency that kept me away a few days longer than I planned. I came home to my tank covered in dinos. This is pretty disheartening at the moment. The stuff is covering nearly every surface. I need some help! @mcarroll At some point during my trip, my phosphates dropped to zero and stayed there for a while. My nitrates are probably low too, coming in about 5ppm on the salifert test. I am not sure how accurate the salifert nitrate test is at these levels. Tank is about 80 gallons, 60g display / 20g sump Water parameters to date: I am using a no water change system. I add trace elements as needed per monthly water testing. What I've done so far: 1. Dose nitrate, raising it 2 ppm per day dosing potassium nitrate 2. Dose phosphate, raising it 0.02 ppm per day using Brightwell NeoPhos 3. Increase temp to 83F 4. Installed UV sterilizer I had on hand (Green Killing Machine 24W) 5. Turned off skimmer 6. Added 100 micron filter socks 7. Dosed 10ml Microbacter7 What I plan on doing soon: 1. Ordered a microsope to id dino type 2. Continue dosing 10ml of MB7 daily 3. Clean and remove as much as I can by siphoning into a filter sock 4. Continue dosing nitrate and phosphate 5. Start silica dosing with Brightwell Spongexcel to promote growth of competitive diatoms 6. Lower lighting all around, turn off white, and lower blues leds 7. Ordered and start dosing live phyto and pods 8. Find religion, start praying. Any other recommendations? I am hesitant to try chemical means like Vibrant or Dino-X.
