    So my dad and I have a 90 gal reef that has been overrun with cyano for sometime but we are just now getting serious about getting rid of it. My dad thinks it would be easier just to drain everything and start from scratch but I disagree. I made a bet with him today to give me 3 weeks to try to...

    We got this piece of live rock 3 months ago. It has some nice coralline algae on it but I am unsure what the red stuff on it is. Is this bad stuff? If so, what is the best way to get rid of it. It really hasn't done much as far as spreading in 3 months.

    Hi everyone, I was at petco today and I found nice healthy fish (yellow tang and kole tang), however I noticed that tanks here have Cyanobacteria. Question is it safe to buy from tanks having Cyanobacteria? Any advise? Just afraid I would ruin my tank with Cyanobacteria. Quick background on...

    My tank is the Red Sea Max S 500 with 200 pounds live rock and it's almost 5 months old. Cycle went well and after a month I added my first addition clean up crew which included two bleeny fish. I had a slight green algae problem which the clean up crew took care of in about 3 days and ever...

    I am having algae problems in my FOWLR tank and was wondering if anyone had any advice. It started with the red velvety cyanobacteria covering all of my live rock. My phosphates and nitrates were a little high so I have been treating the tank with NO3 PO4 nitrate and phosphate reducer from Red...

    Greetings fellow reefers! Have a bit of a concern and I am hoping others here have had the same problem, as I have read on other forums of folks having this issue but no follow ups on how they corrected it. :help: I have been battling a cyanobacteria (red slime) outbreak for a few months now...

    Hello All, So, my tank has been up for about 4 months and cyano has shown up right on time... I'm sure it's because of phosphates from adding fish and is partly due to lack of flow because it's only on one side of the tank, so I changed up my power heads and the flow is much more uniform...

    Help! About a month ago I posted a thread on here about having a severe red cyanobacteria out in my tank. Over the course of the month i've changed my bulbs to be brand new, bought an RO unit, and a phosphate reactor. All have been installed in my tank and are running as designed. At first...

    Good Evening TRT!!! I would just like to tell you about the change from crushed coral to bare bottom. With crushed coral I continually had problems with cyanobacteria due to the trapped nutrients in the gravel (never do only crushed coral unless extremely thin) and thus I took the leap to clean...

    So for the last few months I've been battling cyanobacteria, and finally, due to an increase in pay I've been receiving and a few successful investments, I've been able to purchase a protein skimmer, more live rock, R/O water for my waterchanges, another powerhead, a stronger Clean up crew and a...

    I have been waging a war(and losing) against cyanobacteria until I finally broke down and bought some Chemiclean. It did a really nice job of removing all of the cyano and I now have a nice pretty tank. I have been running GFO in my canister for about a week now. I just started my skimmer back...
