Many people use this product with no regard.
I reduced my feedings and there is high flow down there. I stopped it from growing. Red slimmer remover gets it done fast. I isn't want to wait. Start reading the thread before u make comments like that!

Umm excuse me? Did i miss something? How is what i said false in any way? Also it was my advise. If you want to put it in your tank thats YOUR choice.

Oh and if you couldnt stop it then you couldnt control the nutrient issue. There is only one reason this stuff grows, and the lack of red slime remover in your tanks is not the reason.....

If i said something please inform me. And i was not a comment it was a factual statement. Go read

Just because the cyano is gone doesn't mean the nutrient problem is. If there's enough to cause cyano it's usually enough to do harm.

To the op, the thing is, yes, if you want to get rid of your cyano quickly and easily, use chemicals. BUT if you do, you STILL HAVE TO reduce the nutrients. If you can't stand the look but are willing to do the required maintenance to get rid of it, you could use the chemicals but get rid if the source afterward.
