I'd try other measures first...run carbon to absorb any possible toxins. Remove snails to where you can safely keep them alive. Siphon and remove anything you can get your hands on and then completely blackout the tank for a few days. Then do a water change when the blackout is done and siphon anything left you see.

Now, I've heard they are fed by WCs, so if I don't get it all out, they just grow right back with a big WC. And I will remove the snails. Should the container be heated?

Also, after putting in the 1 ml last night, I have noticed a reduction in some of it.

Some say no water changes at all and some say huge water changes. It's going to be a battle with Dino's. What's really going to help is lights out and getting what you can out of your tank

I started the blackout two nights ago, and added carbon. There has already been a huge reduction in the dinos when I quick checked this afternoon!

Don't let me give you bad luck but dinoflagellates is photogenic and requires light hence why in the mornings it's hardly noticeable but come the end of your lighting cycle it's out and everywhere.

I really hope the blackout works for you but be prepared in the fact as soon as you put those lights back on it can return

Yep, I've read that. Thanks for the reality check too. Any ideas on how to make sure it stays away? Should I lower light intensity?
