Coral explosion but why ?

So I've had a sudden major improvement in the appearance of my coral, mostly soft over the last two weeks. Only thin different has been hat I treated for cyano(I know I caved, couldn't swing it managing my water quality) and I the mean time removed my carbon(to avoid removing the erythro). Is it possible that the carbon was removing micronutrients from the water which are now helping my coral flourish? Or is it just the fact that they're not competing with the cyano?

The improvement most likely came from the water change. Removal of nutrients and replenishing the essential elements.
