That's exactly what it looks like
Here are some more pictures and what should I do?
Please review Logan's thread.
This is what I did, when I had dino.
1. No water changes, for some reason it seems to feed the dino.
2. Complete black out for 4 days, your corals will be fine. Cover the tank so no light gets in. Do not cover it so much that you prevent gas exchange. Once the black out is over increase lighting period slowly, do not start by keeping the lights on the same schedule you had before. If you see the dino start to grow again, reduce the lights again.
3. Everyday take a turkey baster and clean all rocks and corals and substrate. Allow the mechanical filtration, sponges or floss or sock to remove the particles and then clean that filtration.
4. Maintain a good pH of 8.2-8.4 as much as possible.
This is what I did, it worked after about 3 weeks. It's a tough thing to battle.
I also stopped dosing products called Reef Fuel and any Amino Acids.
Good luck with this battle! You will be victorious. I love that picture of your jawfish with that look like "Dude, what the heck is this? can you take care of this please?"
As a follow-up, not trying to take the thread off topic, what kind of jawfish is that? It has gorgeous coloring as well as such a great face.
It's a blue dot jaw fish, look them up they're great fish. They love watching people
Actually now that I think of it It was around the same time I installed my Ecotech Radions I'm currently running a 12 hour photo cycle with one hour of blues at the Beggining and end of cycle. My tank is mostly LPS but have some SPS and softies will they be alright with a 4 day black out period?
My tank was all sps and some LPS they all made it through fine.
The Dino did kill off my zoanthids prior to treatment. Dino is toxic.
Thank You, I will start doing this today I'll keep everyone updated.
I found this article about Dino's that share some good information also.
