No it is hard. Clumps when I move the sand.

That's what my purple/red cyan did I just removed as much as possible and added a reef safe medication and I haven't had a spike or another problem with it since

Well looks like I got the cyano fixed now it is time to get more fish. Currently I have two clowns, one flame angel, and one coral beauty. Any advice on what I should add next. Looking for some ideas. I would like a mandarin one day so I will stay away from pod eaters as much as possible.

I stopped feeding daily. I also used Kent Marine Nitrate Sponge. This lowered my nitrates to 0.
