If put money your tank was getting over fed while you were away. Cyano is a nutrient issue that happens to like low flow. A cuc and more flow will help but not solve the issue at hand. Lessen feedings.

I doubt your overfeeding if you only feed every other day unless your feeding excessive amount rule of thumb is whatever they can consume within 2 minutes id say get some tongan nass snails tongan are bigger than reg nass theyll keep your sand from building up nutrients and also eat whatever your fish dont your flow seems fine to

Make sure your skimmer is also working properly

My cyano problems I have found are directly related to my frozen food use. I cut way down on frozen foods, and my cyano goes away. Maybe something to check into if you use frozen mysis or other frozen cubes for feeding.

I feed pellets mostly. Frozen food every other Sunday because I had heard the same thing about them being a major cause of outbreaks.

As far as my protein skimmer. I usually empty it every water change... Its usualy almost to the over flow valve. sometime it will overflow. Its an Aqua C Remora. So I'd assume that its running right???
