Just reduce your nutrient import and increase your nutrient export and you'll be able to get it under control without any additives.

No, chemiclean and red slime remover are not harmful to fish or coral. It'll make a protein skimmer go nuts for a couple of days though. Just keep in mind, that unless the problem causing cyano is addressed it will just come back later on.
