There is a ton of info on cyno on this site. Try doing a search and see what you come up with. Bring any questions back here.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

I had it bad. Cut the lighting and feeding back. It was still there, so I finally broke down and added Chemi-Clean. Not a sign of it since, but I am not fond of the idea that I had to add chemicals to the tank.
I'm not addicted... I can quit when ever I want...Wait...I'll just LOOK at the fish.

55 gal cycling. Will be FOWLR.
