    I read somewhere in this thread that emerald crabs eat Dino, so I three a couple of those in there. Can't say if it was the crabs or the Dino had already ran its course.

    it's possible i think, just depends on how lucky you are with them. so far besides the lights out, the only other thing that seems like is working for me is Corailline's suggestions; the reduced feedings and stripping the water of everything in it. Also not changing the water at all to not add any vitamins that will break down.
