I feed twice a week. Twice a day is way overkill.

Nope. They are quite fat actually. You don't need to feed that much. That is why you have a cyano bloom.

Nice tank. Love your stock! I battled a cyano outbreak about 6 months ago. I got new light bulbs and installed a reactor. No cyano now. I have a 135g reef. Did you get the kole tang? I think I might get one. Either that or a whitecheek.

I feed twice a day, no issues or outbreaks. It depends on how much and if it all get consumed IMO. Also a great cuc will help keep your trates down by eating excess food and dietris.

No I didn't get the kole tang, I went for the magnificent fox face instead. My bulbs are only 3 months old, an my media in the reactor is only a week old so it shouldn't be those that are causing the problem with Cyno.

Yea I think I have been putting too much food in at one time. I have more than halved the amount I feed now, still twice a day but nowhere near as much.

I'm using a dymax skimmer at the moment it's big enough for tanks up to 1000L and its working really well tbh.
