I'm not even sure marycin works for saltwater cyano. I know that freshwater cyanobacteria is indeed a bacteria, so an antibiotic like marycin works as a last ditch effort. but FW tanks are also less sensitive to chemicals (generally speaking), since you don't have all these delicate inverts and live rock, coralline, etc.

Former advisor and planted tank geek...life's moved on though.

Also Maracyn will do a great job at killing off your biological filter, not a good idea at all.
There are not too many quick fixes with SW, most of them advertised are either to weak to be effective, or may damage something in our delicate systems.
Follow the suggestions in my earlier post, they do work. Just takes a little time to show results.

Yeah, come to think of it, the ocean is a giant filter, constantly cleansing and recycling itself. Yet there are freshwater puddles of mud can house fish..... *blech*
