Interesting full tank pic. Seems like one side of tank is lit by a different type of bulb than the other side. I like the blue side better atleast for picture takeing.

Lots of coraline growth.

If your doing regular water changes I wouldn't dose Magnesium. The water changes will take care of that for you.

yeah, i do have two different bulbs actually theres a 6500k on the yellowish side, 19 watt screw in, i plan on replaceing it with a 10 watt 50-50 screw in, but then the porblem is id be loseing wattage. i switch the bulbs every now and hten, the other ones a 2x9 watt one 65k one actnic 03, so the corals dont miss out on the actnic so much and since i hear frags like 65k better for growing faster i put hte bulb over the frag.

Cyano is normally caused by a lack of maturity in the SB as well as excessive nutrients in the system. Fragging and the toxins, that the corals may release, will not cause cyano outbreaks.
