It's been how many days now and my tank looks like its been recovering from cyano. No more red bubbly slime on my rocks and on my sand but i can still see some hair of the cyano which is in dark colour more like black to me. Is this already dying? What do you think?

What I did was less feeding, less light (5hrs), added chaeto to my sump. I haven't hooked up the phosban reactor yet because I've been busy.

Merry christmas

Less light, less feeding and more cheato... Sounds like a recipe for success to me!

Merry Christmas!
