Has anyone had an outbreak with an octo in their tank? Not really sure how to go about trying to get rid of them while keeping things safe for our sweet Davy!

What protocol have y'all used successfully? It is just starting to pop up on one rock and I want to get it under control before it becomes a major outbreak!

I’ve not dealt with dinoflagellates, but from what I’ve read, most dinos are photosynthetic, so starving them for light might help, and octopus don’t need/want much light.

Yeah I have kept the lights off, skipped this weeks water change and turned the skimmer off. It makes me nervous not having the skimmer on incase he inks but I really don't want them spreading and becoming a bigger issue
