oh gross!!!!

Well i was doing a water change tonight and cleaning the galss and syphoning some cyano off the sand when i came across a turbo shell in the sand. I picked it up and yuck. A bunch of black stuff came out of the shell. My guess his rotting carcas. Do you think this may be the cause of my cyano bloom? i tried to syphon as much of the black crap out that i could but couldn't get all of it. Is this going to hurt anything. Wish i would have found it before i did the water change.

A rotting snail will help your cyano to grow. I would do another water change as soon as the new water is ready. I am surprised that hermits didn't get him before you found it.
