I was talking about some times people just wish the aquarium worked their way. Unfortunately, this is simply not the case. An aquarium works 1 way and that is natures way.

Not a comment reflective towards your thread, infact, I found it very informative. Just agreeing with crabs in a general sense.

Okay, I was just wondering. But yes, it works like it wants despite how hard we try to make it now. I agree haha

Yeah, I personally have had some crazy issues with cyano. It wasn't until I changed my RODI distributer and purchased a 40$ phosban 150 reactor from bulk reef supply that I never saw the stuff again. If I ever (rarely) see bubbles under my sand bed, I simply use a small acrylic feeding stick and swish the sand. I am a firm believer that a single bubble under the sandbed is not only a byproduct of cyano trying to form, but also an air supply to start a grouping.

Well my water is fine and I run a brs reactor with gfo, which should be sufficient going off of what other people do/ have said. BUT that's never the case when it comes to me

Before everyone jumps on my case for saying, I used chemiclean to eliminate it before adding the reactor and new water supplier. I think that any cyano in the system will build back up. I chose super eliminate!

I think its a good way to do it! I used chemiclean to get rid of the algae. With no algae the gfo will absorb the phosphates and keep the algae from coming back! Worked for me!

Chemiclean kills the algae does not fix the problem
