Algae?

I have been trying to determine for days, whether this is cyano or not.
If the pictures help identify it....thanks for the help.
There is a photo of the normal brown algae, and you can see the color
difference between it and the other.

I apologize for the crappy photos, but I have determined I am beyond help when it comes to photography.

You got 3 photos with cyano bacteria displayed in each photo. The green appears to be slime algae as well. Increase nutrient export, the new skimmer will help, feed less, increase waterflow, do a waterchange with RO/DI, sipohoniong off as much as possible. You should also consider a queen conch to help keep the sand bed clean.

The new skimmer came yesterday, as did 2 more powerheads. Already, the skimmer has pulled ALOT of stuff out of the water. Will get more salt tomorrow to do a water change.
Thanks for the help.

it is very dark, dark tea colored would describe it well. There is no "tuning" of this one, it is set it up and go. The air is wide open throttle on this.
