I don't know. I've got some in my tank and I've tried siphoning it out, I do my pwcs... I just added a fish two days ago (I had it before the fish). My nitrates are ~5ppm...

I noticed a lot of people run in to the same issue, regardless of parameters at one point a couple months into the build of the tank. less feeding more pwc and shorten your schedule temporarily for your lighting system will improve this.

I'm thinking about getting some GFO to toss into my filter. I don't know though if that will help.

Yeah I'll manage. I think I know why it started so quickly, I grabbed some live sand from my 29g and put it into my fuge. And at the time it had a lil bit of cyano on it. So that's a good possibility.. stupid me

Absolutely true. Lots of young tanks get a bout of cyano. I don't know if something leaches out of fresh rock and sand or what but it's really common. Strong flow also doesn't hurt. It's just one of those battles that pops out of nowhere at some point or two during the first year of a lot of systems. Once there's lots of other life all over every part of a reef it usually doesn't come back.

Put the lights low, crank up the flow, feed modestly (you already do that) and pop in some phosphate remover (you probably have it in already). It just stinks to have it but it's almost like a rite of passage.. like the tank's just testing you to see if you're serious about keeping another tank. lol You'll defeat it.
