Ya looks like the start, just siphon it out and play with your flow a little, looks like you may have some detritus settling there

Yes cyanos. Vaccum this before it spreads everywhere, make sure you don't have "deads spots".

Check your parameters. You have excess nitrates and/or phosphates. Get those in check.

I did, it went away for a day, came back. Woohoo, Cyano, just what everyone loves!

Nitrates are 0
Phosphates are .1-.2 area.

Cut back on feeding. You need to pull out what you put in.

Maybe a dead spot then... Increase flow in this area if you're able to...

Or maybe just siphon them by gravel vaccum and let's see what happen...
