Red Slime

I am having a red slime outbreak in my 72 gal. reef tank. All my levels are good. Any suggestions on how to get rid of it? Thanks

Cyano is cause by high nutrients in the water. What's is your actual nitrate level and actual phosphate level?
Do you use RO/DI water for top offs and water changes?
