First off I want to thank everyone who helped me with my cyano
issue. Good news is I figured out the problem.. bad news is, it may take some work to fix.
I cant believe it. You learn something new every day is all I have to say on that. I feel sort of dumb, being in this hobby for over 2 years now.. apprently I have bad flow in the back part of my tank and when I cleaned the tank, I only vacuumed the front part! Duh! I did a 50% water change ( hope to do another next week) - I used my turkey baster behind the rocks ( since I couldnt get the 'vaccum' back there) and it is unbeleiveable how much deitrus was back there! And I didnt even get it all with the 50% change. I dont know why I didnt think of it sooner... yikes! At least the livestock didnt suffer ( the coral is actually growing!)
My question now being, how do I better increase my flow? I have two koralia 3s in my 55 gallon along with about 80# of live rock which I have propped up against the back wall of the tank - there is a tunnel that goes all the way through the rock in the back, but only a few holes in the middle of the rock. How do I make this better without completely tearing down the rockwork and stressing the fish/coral?
Much appreciation to everyone whos helped and thank you to anyone with any more suggestions
