Cyano will stay and continue to return until the nutrient issue it is feeding off of is addressed.
I even have some in my tank in a low flow area. This is from my tank running off of distilled water, rather than ro/di. So, cut back on feeding, use ro/di water, so on just like addressing an algae issue.

Yes. I wouldn't be able to keep coral at all using distilled water, rather than ro/di, without it. Algae is hard enough to control at times.
