It was the same with me. It definitely didn't come on over night though in my situation, but it did come fast after I saw a little. After talking to people in the hobby near me, almost everyone has cyano issues in the first few months of starting the tank. Mine was so bad, I had to use red slime remover. I haven't seen it since and I've added a lot since then. It was the push I needed to get it gone, I tried a lot of pwc, blackout, and constant picking it out.

Sounds like I need to get a laptop to cut back on my lighting. Sigh. Always when I get moving well.

Hold back on that first. Try pulling out as much as possible, also do more pwc for like a few weeks. That might be enough. It doesnt look like you have much.

Well, the garbage is still in the tank, sticking to the rocks, sides, and coral. I keep blowing it off the coral and wiping it off the glass. Don't believe it is cyano, but I dosed red slime remover anyway.

Ok, 72 hour work week is over as is my 14 day stretch. Somehow through all of this, in my opinion, neglect of my tank...I've got control of the brown slime issue. Thank god for proper maintenance. I still need to work more of it out of my sump and I still have to clean it off the sides of my tank, but it isn't overwhelming everything now.

I'll have the water change on Monday. The water is already made up, but I have to help my sister move back into my parent's home tomorrow...joy of joys. But during that water change I'll clean the rest of the garbage out.
