Dinoflagellates?

Over the past three days I saw what I thought was brown jelly disease but Iím starting to think it looks more like dinoflagellates. Can anyone identify it and give me some pointers on how to get rid of it? Thereís more near my lps but I canít get a good pic of it. Itís brown and stringy. [ATTACH]311632

That isn't what dinos looks like. What are the current parameters in your system? It's most likely cyanobacteria.

Dinos are more of a slimy brown algae that coats primarily your rocks in my experience. They definitely are not stringy like that.
