Unless I go FOWLR and give up with coral or am I being to impatient

I'm also dealing with dinos currently.
From some of the stuff I read it seems one problem dealing with them is that they are the same type/family of algae that live in coral/anemone tissues, so any treatments may can also impact corals.
I've lost all my stony coral because of it and some zoas. Trying for a few days of low/no light and see if that makes a difference.

Honestly I read many methods of dealing with it, many of them conflicting and none certain to fix the problem, but I don't think nutrient levels in water are the primary issue with dinos' , but as I said, I saw lots of conflicting info and I'm still left guessing about how to deal with them.

ID:	281238 I did read a thread that someone uses 3 day blackouts every month or so to kill off "unsightly" algae. Not every day is bright sunshine in the Caribbean 😱 still treating with dino x apparently it take a good 10 doses to start improving in bad cases

Completed the max doses with dino x did a large water change still had a few stringy bits remaining so I did another 2 day blackout and my filter sock took a lot of the rest out I think I'm back on top of it again it's takes a few days to appear... Any ideas to keep it away? Large water changes I guess?
