If you have cyano then something is a miss.

Overfeeding, overstocking can cause excess nutrients in the water which is what algae and cyano feed off of. Do you use ro/di water?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

"Everything is perfect" is never the correct answer to a request for numbers. Cyano does not require much excess to get started, but once established, it can go wild. Any areas of low flow will also aid it's formation.

I got lots of circulation, I'll see what I can about the flow I guess
