Well, update on the tank, and it's not good. I have read many articles and forums, and the tank is suffering from golden brown cyano
, maybe mixed with diatoms, or as Sniperhank originally suggested, Dinos. I mostly have stringy stuff on the lower rocks, closer to the sand, and all the sand is covered in brown, although only certain areas have the stringy stuff. I have scrubbed those rocks, but the stuff just comes back. I did a 6 gallon water change, very gently sucking up what I could and turkey basted what came off. I also use a small net to collect what floats to the top and is against the side of the tank. In case it was Cyano
, I dosed UltraSlime two days in a row. The skimmer went crazy, and a lot came off. The next morning it was back. One forum suggested hydrogen peroxide would wipe it out, at least most of it. I need some advice here. No sence sending a picture as I just cleaned up the tank. By the way, the higher rocks are getting some algae and coralline. Getting really pretty. Ok, anything anyone can suggest?
