I had a bad Cyano
problem a few months ago. Im always afraid to use any of the red slime removers so I go with the manual process (50% water change then scrub every single rock with a tooth brush in the waste water). I then change my PC
bulbs and as expected I get an outbreak of hair algae. I staffed up my CUC and added a one spot fox face. The hair algae is receding and so far no new cyano
. Doing 30% water changes until everything is back to normal.
Every couple of years I get complacent on my water changes and end up right back where I am now. I think color changes in my PC
bulbs are the trigger. It takes 2-3 months of hard work but you can overcome this problem.
I've been keeping a SW
tank for about 10 years now... I am anything adding anything that doesn't naturally occur in the ocean.
