ive heard cyano normally start appearing with levels of phosphate or the tank is near a window (sunlight) or your lighting might be on too long.

You could try just flicking off your lights and leave it in night mode for 3 days or so..... that'll kill it

normally.... macroalgae can die and start seeding all over your tank/pipes which involves a massive clean up day to fix it.... lol but never heard of it dumping bad nutrients in the water

When it goes sexual it dumps excess nutrients back into the water raising nitrates and phosphate.
