I'm not sure what you are asking. Are you referring to the tank being cloudy?

Do you check your phosphate levels? If so what is it at? Are you using ro/di water or tap water?

How long has the tank been up?

I don't check phosphate levels, I don't think I have a kit for that. I use reverse osmosis tap water but I condition it.

I don't have a skimmer I didn't think that was needed in a 10g.

The cyano has lessened but not much and I've had it for a couple months. I've used carbon in my filter but I took it out after about 6 weeks, it wasn't helping and it was a little messy.

Looks to me you need more live rock, but really, you absolutely need more flow.

It definitely looks like you need more flow. Add a couple powerheads to get more flow. Buy some carbon and place it in a mesh bag. Place it in your hang on filter. And change it out once a week.

From the looks of the picture it also looks like you're also battling red slime algae.
