I too was battling the dreaded red cyano
. I seem to have gotten a hold on it and it's almost all gone. I stepped up the water changes and siphoned all I could with the pwc
. The other thing I did was stop feeding store bought food except for a couple of times a week at the most as a treat. Rinse the frozen stuff with RO
What I feed now is a fresh seafood mixture made from scratch (recepie provided by Doug ( Mr. X)). Go to the seafood counter at the grocery store and pick up some raw shrimp, squid, scalops,etc. Actually here is the link to the insructions...

I think feeding this more than store bought stuff also help fight the cyano
. I feed that to my anemone, torch, duncans, etc as well as the fish. They all took to it from the first batch. Also can't remember if Doug's instructions say so or not but I add Selcon and garlic extract to the mixture as well.
Keep at it. You're getting there. Things just take a bit longer with saltwater. Let me know how it goes...
