Hi Thank you both for the info, I have phosguard in the sump tank and all my Ammonia, nitrites, phosphate and nitrates are all 0 and I have the power heads. I will try turning the light off for a few days and see how it goes.

How long should I be leaving on my blue and white lights?

Cyano is actually bacterial, not algal.

Flamingos get their coloration because of the beta carotene present in the shrimp and blue green algae that is included in their diet. Not because of eating red algae.

Manually remove all you can during your next WC.

I would siphon as much up as possible of it. Keep an eye on your nitrate and phosphate levels. We also have a great article on it in our articles section.
