Look in my sand on the edge of my glass where my Hermit crab is walking. You will see bubbles in the sand and bubbles being released by the hermit and floating up and being blown away by my current. That is nitrogen bubbles.

Well installed a Phosban Reactor tonight with 150g of Phosban measured the water flow out to 1 cup per 12 seconds which equals to about 20g an hour. Hope fully some of the cyano will start to go away. Might order another one to put De-Nitrate in!

Yeah mine looks the same between the sand and glass. I am not sure that I see much leaving the sand. I see some on the right side of my tank but I also have some algae growing on the sand and it has bubbles on it. Hopefully the Reactors I am getting will bring down the Phosphates and Nitrates that are reading 0 Phos and 2ppm Nitrates at the moment.

If you check out this link and look at the left side. At the 6-8 sec mark you will see a bubble I am getting 5-6 of these every 1-2 sec. However you can see the cyano on the sand towards the rock. I will put a updated video on here in a bit if anybody wants to see.
