Does look like dinoflagellates , you should notice it will become long stringy when exposed to light. I defeated really bad Dino infestation recently. Only thing that worked was a UV filter. Observe if the dinoflagellates dissolve in the water column at night. If so, UV filter is your best bet. Ran UV filter 24/7 for 2 weeks; almost all Dino’s disappeared. Now I run it 12 hours at night. I would advise against chemicals, but do your own research.

Identification is key in treating dinos. Treatment may vary based on ID.

Blackout for 2 days works well for me to beat Dinos or whatever i had. I also run a UV, abit a small 13w cheapo versus from amazon. Safer than any chemicals.
