People have told me that cyano is generally a cause of a little too much food. I have also heard that water changes can help too.

Over feeding, lights on too long. Your best bet will be to feed less, maybe cut back on your light schedule depending what it currently is. You'll have to remove as much as possible by hand. Keep the water chages up. It can be a battle lol.

8am to 9pm? 13 hours is overkill i. What kind of lights do you have? My 8 bulb t5 is on for 7 hours.

Yea 13 hours is a lot. Cutting that back is step 1. Do you mean you're not going to cut back on feeding? Or just stating your feeding schedule? Your fish will be fine with every other day. They'd actually be fine with less than that but I feed every other day and all is well.

The rule if thumb I always go with is cut your feeding and light schedule by half, and do twice the amount of water changes . Also vacuum out as much cyano as possible

Great thanks guys! I was told awhile ago to have that type of scheduale, but ill change it!

And yes, i was refering to how i am not going to feed every other day. Not every day

Ill vacumm/scoop it out today, but im afraid i cant do any more water changes than usual..im outta salt!! Lol

Speaking of which, is it okay to just scoop it out?
