good to know. I appreciate the help. As far as cyano goes, I'm not on any particular lighting schedule. Some days the lights may be on for 4 hours and some days it may be on only an hour or not at all. I have read that lighting is a key to cyano surviving, but what I have seen is people recommend keeping the lights on 5 hours or less a day, which I do 99% of the time. Anyway will the lights being off most of the time actually starve out cyano if it's present or will the cyano just go into a hibernating state until enough lighting is present?

You need to get some light timers and put the tank on a schedule. Good flow across the sand can also prevent the cyano from getting a foothold there.

Oh sorry, I actually thought of that from a skit that belongs to Jeff Dunham. He was doing the act with Walter and Walter was talking about his wife. If you haven't seen it go to youtube and look it up. It's hilarious.
