be sure you follow the instructions carefully because it can be pretty potent stuff. But first and foremost i would try and solve the problem naturally instead of treating it with chemicals so that you dont just get cyno again a couple months down the road

Adding any chemical to take care of a problem is only a temporary solution. The red slime remover will work but it can have adverse effects on the tank as well. Personally I would increase PWCs, reduce feedings, reduce photo period (to 5-6 hours). Make sure your skimmer and all filtration is clean of detritus. If you have sponges in your filtration make sure to rinse them out when doing your PWCs. Siphon out as much of the cyano as you can while doing PWCs.

I WAS JUST WANDERING IF ANYONE KNOWS IF THIS PHOS-X WILL HARM MY ANEMONE IT HAS NOT BEEN COMING OUT AS FULLY AS IT NORMALLY DOES. IT IS STILL EATING AND EVERYTHING I AM JUST WORRIED.

What type anenome is it? What kind of lighting? What are your water test results?
