A canister can be fine if you maintain it properly. The cyano is coming from nutrient issues, which might mean it is building up nitrates and possible over feeding.

my levels are perfect
I just did a test
and my, LFS checked yesterday and that was good, but I think I am feeding too much, also just put my hand on that rock, it seems hard, but there is some of that on the sand?
Thanks
