Ok I think I'm getting the cyno under control. I no longer have such a broad carpet of it on my sand bed. I still have a little on my LR
, and a very small bit sand. I completly turn the lights off except for the moon light for about a week. I also added a second return spot for more flow. With my sump, I got rid of the bio balls I had and added 2 plain filter pads in both sides of my bubble trap. One after the skimmer, and one before the return pump.
I have also done water changes every other day, along with cleaning the filter pads. I also started to feed only once a day.
My question to prevent this from happening again is...
What is the proper lighting cycle with the white/blue/and moon lights? Do I ever turn the white and blue ones on at the same time?
If for some reason the cyno comes back when I turn the lights on, will I have to wait another week before I can use them again?
This last question is kinda off the subject...
Why would I suddenly start getting small amonia levels in my water? Now that the cyno is going away??? All my other readings were Zero.
Thanks for all the help so far!!!!
