I agree with Timbo. When I was fighting cyano, I did al of the above mentioned treatments and they did help to keep it more controlled, but I never really won the battle until I switched to RO water. Over the period of many waterchanges, It subsided and now I have no problem with it. Test your PO4, or ask your LFS to test for you. I suspect maybe the filters in your ro\di system need replacing.

Don't give up. What appears to be an unbeatable foe, is merely a visual eyesore. You can win.

Going back to Haras original reply, if I was to shut off the lights, do I shut off both MH and actinics or just MH. Also, will this have a negative effect on my tank inhabitants? will look around the net for a mag 350 setup.

reducing to just actinics did not help my situation at all. It was not until I shut off all light source did I get a grip on a very frustrating case of cyano.

But by shutting off all lighting would that harm my clam, fish, dusters,corals, etc? I am willing to try anything at this point, but I don't want anything to die.
