I too have a little cyano but seems to be dispersing now many things can contribute to getting it eg too much light too low flow and over feeding are the main causes your test kits may read nitrate and phosphate at very low levels but only because the bacteria is absorbing it for food try removing and testing the water 24hrs later. I reduced my lighting to 6-7hrs a day and did two 10% water changes a week and it seems to be dieing off also increased my flow as this does not allow it to settle and spread it's a tricky one and some methods work better for others you can get chemicals for it like chemiclean but would suggest removing naturally if poss. Hope this helps
