I would just suck out the cyano and do a water change. No reason to upset everything.

I had a canister going on for a month without cleaning it cuz let's just say it was a bad couple weeks and I had no nitrates or issues so I don't see how that would be the issue maybe but from my experiences not likely

When i tore it apart the inside was packed with algae. I the filter floss was GREEN. The carbon looked ok but the inside was slimey. Im gonna put it back together but im gonna clean it all out weekly. Needed or not.

I got a sweet deal! Picked up an oceanic sump model 1. And a koralia 4. Sump comes with a rio 1100. Now i gotta figure out how to hook the sump up after i figure out to drill or not too. Gotta figure out if its tempered. Gonna dot the LCD trick.
