Actnics only, and coral is looking way better

I have a red slime issue, I went away for 4 days and turned off day lights for 4 days. (actnics only) my zoas are blown up bigger then ever and other stuff is looking better also. 40 breeder, actnics, ati blue special and purple special, daylight, blue special and 10k. Any thoughts?

Cyano is mostly due to overfeeding and/or not enough filtration. Unfortunately turning off the lights won't help in the long run; though it's a good idea to do so while you decrease your feeding schedule/amount.

Do the zoa's also appear taller/higher than normal? If so, they're probably reaching for more light. What other corals are in your tank?
