the ally you're missing is algae. Get algae to thrive and it will reset the water chemistry so Dinos can't return.

I installed a massive algae scrubber and fed it.. some use tree stump remover for Nitrates and other sources for Phosphates.

I also used a low flow UV sterilizer and went lights out to force them through it. That way I kept the scrubber lit for the algae but killed the dinos with the UV.
