well the stuff i had in my tank was a red hair like slime. after i did the water change the red hermit crabs came and ate it all up. it only took them about 2 day i would say.the red hermit crabs were the scarlet reef crabs. i dont think the dwarf zebra hermits ate it, i think it was only the scarlet reef that did.

A 46 gal bow front (Soft coral) reef tank with a 10 gal sump. And a 30 gal (SPS and Clam) reef tank hooked up to the sump of the 46 so they share water.

Strictly speaking cyano should be blue/green.. but the more common kind seems to be the red one.

The Cyano in my tank only grows at the very bottom of the glass just above the substrate. Otherwise its on the substrate itself and covers decorations and rocks where the water flow doesnt hit it.

Early stages it looks like a film, then becomes more of a blanket like the pics in a previous post showed.

The shell in the picture is supposed to be pure white..

It did not kill my peppermint shrimp, my bi-color blennie, clown fish, polyps, shrooms, or hermit crabs. It did not kill any green algae either. The water was crystal!!! clear after using it but I fixed that after my water change

I have seen no hint of the red stuff since. The stuff is about 15.00 a little vial of powder but the little bottle will treat over 300 gallons (hard to believe when you see the vial)
