Is this green cyano?

This green slim algae started growing a couple of places in the tank. It's a dark green color and has slowly grown to where it's at now. Is this green cyano OR is it something else?

looks like cyano to me. If it slurps up easily with a siphon tube, I would pretty much guarantee it is.
