If it is left to spread unchecked, then yes. It will probabley just as difficult as the cyano
to deal with but as long as you are diligent, I think there is a very good chance you could beat it. I would also think in a more possitive direction, it might not be dinoflagellates at all but rather a nasty mess of hair algae with cyano
mixed in. You could hope at least.
I would also suggest reading up on the ph
parts of the article as they seem to be key. As far as the lion is concerned, make sure you soak the foods in some removed tank water in hopes of diluting any phosphates that may come with it and discarding the water afterwards. I think with just the one fish you will not have as much problems with the qater quality as a stocked tank with many fish.
