I looked at those and by the way they are hooked up to the pipes I can not do that I live in an apartment and I can not alter any of the pipes and if I damage those pipes in anyway then we will be held responsible for the damages. Can those units be hooked up a different way other then being hooked up directly to the pipes?

You can buy an adapter that hooks to your faucet for just about anything, including an RO system. They sell 'portable' RO systems, but it's the same as a permanent system, just different connection and arrangement of the system.

There can be many causes for Cyano. I successfully battled it in a tank with extremely high N and P by siphoning it out (along the the substrate it was attached to), scrubbing the LR vigorously, running a diatom cartridge filter, and doing a series of large PWCs. N and P in that tank are still high by most standards, but the Cyano is gone. Now GHA is everywhere...

My tanks: 120 Reef w/L2 Algae Scrubber, 60 Reef Pond w/floating Algae Scrubber, 40 Breeder Reef w/L2 UAS Tester Algae Scrubber
I maintain: 144 SW Reef w/L2 Algae Scrubber | 200 SW Reef w/L4 Algae Scrubber
Special knowledge: Algae Scrubbers, Acrylic Fabrication
