Bubbles?

I have had a cyano issue for a few weeks. Recently the cyano has started to fade away. I notice as it fades I seem to be left with clear bubbles on my lr in the area where the cyano is fading away. There also looks to be dead stringy peaces of cyano that are now brown with bubbles on the end. Is this normal? I am just curious to know if this is the what happens when cyano is dieing off?

No. Its not dying its thriving. You need to go lights out for 4 days and a water change the 5th day. Do you have a cuc? Are you running charcoal media?

Cyano is a nutrient issue in your tank. Until you address the nitrates and phosphates, you won't see any relief from cyano or algae.
There are links to fighting algae in my signature. Which is the same battle, just cyanobacteria rather than algae.

To reflect, haven't we been having the same discussions over and over?

Yeah and since then I started feeding every other day and bought a hanna phosphate checker. I test 0 phosphates 0 nitrates. I have not checked tds but told my lfs to check it they said they were going to look at it. I turned my lighting duration down, changed my carbon and gfo.

Cut back on feeding more. I feed my tank 2-3 times a week, half a cube of mysis or brine shrimp.
Check the TDS of the water you are using before mixing and see where it is at. Siphon as much of that junk out as you can. Increasing flow can help as well.
It is a long drawn out battle, so don't get discouraged.

Do you think pellets are worse than mysis?

Pellets and flake foods are higher in phosphate than frozen foods. Packaged frozen foods contain phosphates in the water they are frozen in, and can be simply rinsed out.
