I'm having cyano now too. It's usually because of trates I thought, but I have 0 :/ not sure what's going on.

Im having a small battle with cyanp as well. The flow in my tank blows right now...i destroyed my aquascape to try and save my german blue polyp by building a tower of rock. Im far from worried. Won a big victory over it with a pwc and taking some airline tubing to suck it out of my sandbed. Now only diatoms left, but as states i killed my flow. Ill fix it when i upgrade everything with my tax refund.

I use red cyano x by blue life and it amazes me everytime. Scoop out all the cyano you can then dose for 3 days and it's usually gone

Hermits die regularly for me. Like once a month, I don't think it's a big deal. I haven't had a snail die though..
