Suggestion try ro/di from lfs on next couple water changes and top off water if it goes away you will know good luck i know the whole ordeal is unnerving sometimes from my experience youll have up and downs for the first year after that its all gravy i dont do anything in mine i only check alk once a week

Its worth investigating but from my understanding cyano feeds on metals as well as obvious nutrients
