I know how you feel...well kinda cause I only have a 37 gal haha

I had cyano and diatoms all over my tank in the beginning and no matter how long I had the light off for, the cyano would never go. Even off of the rocks. Syphoned and turning sand over didn't matter BUT my best friend the sleeper goby helped:] He made all the orange sand disappear with his sifting and picked at the rocks when he was done so if your tank is safe enough, try a goby.

Well, the lights have been off for two weeks now. I have tried using the stuff that kills cyano, I have tried gobies, and I have siphoned the sand hundreds of times. My nitrates are down to 5ppm and the stuff is still coming back. It just doesn't make sense. Kinda over it. Maybe it's time to take it down and get a cat.
