    I started my tank in March, and ever since then I'd had increasingly huge problems with cyano. It finally got to the extreme end and I had to take action, so I treated with Chemiclean.

    I had an ongoing outbreak of cyano that i cleaned up a bit before a business trip last week by scooping up all the sand that the cyano had matted to. When I got back form the trip 5 days later the sand was red again. So I cleaned out as much as I could as well as pulling out rock that had a...
