Yes... cyano can be green, red, purple, blue, and many shades in between. The key thing is that it looks like a sheet of slimy stuff.

As far as I know, cyano ITSELF can't make fish sick. However... the water conditions that cyano thrives in (high nitrates, high phosphate, etc) could make fish sick. Cyano is a warning sign that something could be better in your tank.
