cyano itself isn't going to kill anything. it's just a symptom of the greater problem- excess nutrients.
it can wait a few days.

I have a cyano problem too in a 125 gallon with all juvenile fish ...hippo tang yellow tang two small clowns and a juvenile blueface angel... Lots of snails and crabs... I did some reading and learned to cut back on length of light exposure... Cut back feeding and increase flow to dead areas... So i cut back lights in half actinics go on at 10:30am full sprectrum from 3:30pm till 9pm then actinics till 11pm then moon lights overnight... I cut back feeding to once a day and much less quantity and installed a koralia powerhead to increase flow... Its only been a few days.... Ill post whether it worked or not in a week or two...
