Depending on what's already in there, a tomini would be a great addition.

Sorry it's not a 75G it is a 29G but we have a 75G in the works!

It looks like theres still some dino algae in the tank but VERY little. Might black out the tank for another day or two? Or just keep at it with the tooth brush and siphoning.

On your 75g tank you may want to consider investing on GFO and UV sterlizer plus cleaning crew for algae control.

Or an algae turf scrubber to use the power of algae to your benefit.

I am actually looking into DIY algae scrubber as my next project on tank improvement.

On the 75G we will be running a lot more. This 29G was just supposed to be for my clowns but I ended up with a few more fish and am getting some new corals next week as well. So I figured since I was putting money into corals I'd put money into the skimmer and reactors as well lol.

I'm going to stock up on my CUC on the 29G but I never know what to get lol. Not to mention the 75G yet lol.

The battle rages on... I uncovered it for a day and realized after a few hours there were a few spots of the Dino characteristic bubbly algae so I covered it back for another day in hopes of killing the last of it. I'm on day two of it being uncovered and it looks like it's coming back. The blackout helped but clearly didn't eliminate it. Here's my questions.

Should I try a longer blackout period (I did 3.5-4 days the first time) because it seemed like it helped a lot just not enough and possibly rush to get the 75G up and put the corals in there temporarily?

OR

Should I try another removal method?

I'm trying for a permanent solution to getting rid of this specific algae as I would rather not just clean it out daily (I will if I have to of course) because it is growing over and around my corals and they're not coming out anymore like they used to.
