alright man, Ive used stuff to remove phosphates and silicates from the water, other then that all my test are comming out perfect as far as water conditions. all the green algae stopped growing, but this stuff just covers the sand in like blankets.

That is cyano, definitely, no two ways about it, cyano. There is an article written on it in the articles section here, you might want to browse through it.
