Cyno Bacteria (Red slime) gone overnight?

Hello all,
I have had what I think is red slime algae (cyno bacteria) for a while now. Just the other morning I woke up to find it all gone?! There is still some on the sides of the tank, but NONE of the sand or rocks have it anymore!

I cant think of what made it leave so suddenly. I did cut the feeding somewhat. I also added three more scarlet hermit crabs as well as a sixline wrasse...

Strange? Normal? Im worried that something made its way into the tank that may also wipe out the good bacteria as well. (Cyno is a bacteria)

Evidently you wiped out the excessive nutrients. I say it`s a good thing.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
