Please tell me these aren't dinoflagellates its slimy and comes off fairly easily. Oxygen bubbles all over it at the end of the day. I'll siphon it off but it grows right back 3-4 days later.
TIA

I don't see dinos. It is trapped oxygen, which can even come from water slashing into the tank or cyano.

Oh phew.
I've been doing 10 gal water changes about every 5 days on my 50 gallon (Aquavitro salt), I'll just continue doing that and siphoning it off and hope it goes away. I thought saltwater cyano was red? This looks exactly like it except green.
Any other suggestions? I have a 50 CAD light tank, a China box LED hung about 1 foot from the water surface on 9 hours a day, running an in sump reef octopus 110, 2 jebao wp10s, tank has been running ~3 months (upgraded from a 20g that was a year old and moved everything over) and I have it stocked with 2 skunk clowns and a citron goby.

Reduce feeding and do a little larger wcs until it's gone is the easiest way to control it
