You're welcome! Yeah, a separate thread would get you way more answers. I may follow it myself just to learn more about the options for a biocube. I've never owned one but they seem interesting.

I would look at changing your flow or lighting schedule. Cyno is sometimes caused by flow or older bulbs. I've heard of people getting it with new bulbs but it went away when they cut back the lighting time.

Cutting back the lighting should help

Well that is a Dsb right if so cyano isn't really a bad thing unless its turns black cyano is what a part of the Dsb cycle it's forms every where under the surface anyways u just don't see it if its on rocks or corals yes not good at all but in the Dsb really nothing to worry about do your fish like to poop there if so that could just be it breaking down and u can visually see it

You called it OscarFan! Less light and more flow.

That GFO should help out, too.
