clearing stuff to be potentially dangerous and usually result in the cyano
adapting and becoming worse! I would only use it as a last resort.
Keep in mind that the cyano
may be using up the nutrients so quickly that you dont realize that your over feeding. (Due to low test results).
For my fish, I have an Ocellaris clown, Bicolor Psuedo, Bicolor Blenny, Blue Damsel, and a Chocolate tang. The tang primarily feeds on garlic enriched seaweed 3x a week but nibbles on some of the mysis. The rest maul the stuff and whatever they don't get, the cleaner shrimps, emerald crabs, and brittle star make short work of. Mysis isn't the only thing I feed, I also drop the occasionally shrimp pellets in and some occasional flake food once in a while to try and keep it interesting for them.
I've used products like Algaefix in the past with great success against hair algae, hasn't surfaced again since, and according to the bottle it says it kills cyano
as well so I might try treating with that again while I build the sump/refugium and new stand.
