Fight Against Gold Algae and Dinoflagellates Infections

DINO X is a liquid algicide that fights against gold algae and other dinoflagellates frequently found in marine aquaria. It successfully treats dinoflagellate outbreaks in reef aquariums without harming corals and other invertebrates.

DINO X is intended for use in saltwater aquariums only.

Recommended Dosing:

  • 5 ml Dino X per 100 L (26 gals) of aquarium water
  • To prevent overdose, it is essential to calculate the exact volume of aquarium water.
  • For heavy infestations and outbreaks, up to 6ml Dino X per 100 L (26 gals) can be dosed.
  • A high-performance skimmer is recommended.
  • Dosage should be repeated every two days until algae are eliminated.
  • A general treatment period cannot be given due to many variables.
  • Dinoflagellates can usually be treated with ten dosages.
  • Other algae can be treated with about 15 doses.
  • Do not perform water changes during the treatment period. Resume water change schedule after one week of last Dino X dose.
  • Do not dose any trace elements during the treatment period. Do not dose any mineral salts, amino acids, SPS food, or Balling Light Trace B Elements
  • Do not use ozone or carbon during the treatment period.
  • Discontinue any absorbing media such as GFO and PO4 removers.
  • Run Fauna Marin Carb L immediately after the last Dino X dose; follow the instruction of recommended dosing.



  • Dino X is NOT a treatment for cyanobacteria. For treatment of Cyanobacteria refer to Fauna Marin Red X
  • When used correctly, Dino X is harmless to inverts and fish.
  • Dino X should always be dosed in the evening or 1 hour AFTER the main lighting has shut off.
    Photosynthesis of Zooxanthellae algae is discontinued, ultimately allowing for optimal effect of Dino X Main lighting phase should be no longer than 6 hours daily.
  • Set skimmer to skim wet and run 24/7.
  • Water parameters can be adjusted with Balling Light or lime water. These do not affect Dino X's performance.
  • Pre-mixed Ca, Alk, and Mg solutions should be used cautiously as these often contain additional trace elements.
