Dinoflagellates: Identification and Tips

I have officially upped my game.  Here is why and how.

I have positively identified the snotty looking brown gunk as dinos.  Here is what they looked like under the microscope at 400X.

The basics of what I am doing now is H2O2 dosing with 3% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide.  I am going to start dosing 1 mL per 10 gallons, try that for several days, and double it if it is ineffective.  I just started dosing yesterday, and so far, there has been no change.  Here is the cheap microscope I bought on Amazon, and also the Hydrogen Peroxide I bought online as well.
