southdown bound

HI guys,
Still having trouble with the cyano crud. I tested for phospates and they were somewhat elevated, so I did a large water change stiring up the sand bed very well, and brought them way down but the next morning I had plenty more patches of the dredded stuff. I am running 40lbs of live sand in my 55g. Most definitely not considered DSB. It is hard to find up where I live.

What is southdown sand. I have read a couple of threads and it refers to buying it at a Home Depot. Can I effectively add good clean white sand to my live sand and still maintain the integrity of the bacteria bed? If so, do you think that this will improve my chances of getting rid of the cyano and and be healthier for my tank.

I have a complete description of my tank in my profile.
