I've been lucky so far, but I would imagine that to be very terrific.

I have some red slime growing in this tank and I have turned the light out to try and get rid of it.

I have had the lights off for three days now and I still see a little bit of it in the tank. I think its getting too much light from the room and the tank next to it si I'm going to try and cover the front and sides of the tank and see it that works. Have you all had any experience with this bacteria?

Cyanobacteria is nutrients in the water column and low flow.
I have some in my reef as well. It is in areas where I could increase the flow, as 2 MP40's is way overkill for the system, but when I do the corals in the area get upset. It can be a balancing act, but you treat it like you do an algae outbreak.

Thanks Sniper. I need to increase the flow. I have to MP10's on this tank I have then situated toward the top to keep the surface of the water clear. So I need to add one or two down lower I guess since that's where the Cyanobacteria is starting.

I haven't seen my saddle back puffer for a while now. I am really sad because I liked him so much.

Hopefully he shows back up for you. Those puffers really can have a personality that you can get attached too.
