Then you should not be trying to remove the product. Did you use it exactly as directed?

I use to turn skimmer off,but it just prolongs the treatment time and makes you do more manual removal.
You need to remove what you see dead,and go from there.
Out of the two tanks I have treated the same , the one with the best skimmer and ozone is clearing the fastest.
You need to crank the skimmer down in the beginning(way down),and then slowly increase it , to keep up on it running properly and removing crap.
If the skimmer doesn't do it you need to with waterchanges.

Def still cyano. Can you lower the powerhead any? You could try to turn the wet side of the vortech as well to get more flow down there.

Well, thats my dillema. The other side of the tank, the MP 40 is about 8 inches of the sandbed. I have one of the return lines circulating the top and the other aiming at that clear patch to the right of the rocks in the last picture. I know I need more powerheads, but trying to find some used MP40's is a PITA.
