So I have noticed a big difference after lowering my white and adding more green red and blue. I also started dosing iron. It's hard to say what was making the difference but my corals look a lot happier. Some had a bit of a brown tint that is now dissapaiting zoas look more extended. Like I said could be a few factors but it's on its way. Tank is really coming into its own considering I started with small frags just over a year ago.

Cyano can discolor corals as it can grow on them and irritate them, but they will continue to grow. My advice would be through a protein skimmer on there, if you don't have one already. Turn off all lights on tank for 3 days. Thats how I got rid of it, and my corals colored up more than ever.

I have always had a little cyano on the sand bed. But my dsb has been maturing and I notice a lot more life coming to play lately. I feel slowly my tank is maturing and starting to become a bit more self sustaining.
