I would suggest you cut your lighting to 8 hours. You could also siphon some of it out of your tank. You need to get a test kit for your tank. Your also gonna need to do some water changes more frequently to help kill it..
Here's a link to help you to getting started

Although Red Slime remover will kill the Cyano, you still need to address what is causing it, or it'll just keep coming back.

I'm using distilled water. My tank has been up for about 7 months.

I've been going for 7 months this time. First time 4 years. Diatoms are a normal part of a salt water tank and everyone, I mean EVERYONE GETS THEM.
