have you tested the water yet? if so what are the numbers.. Testing is the first place to start before doing anything else, this way you know exactly what your dealing with. Is the issue the tank only, tap water, ro/di water. A phosban reactor is also another good way to help with PO4 issues.

I had cyano two months ago and used chemi-clean. It worked like a charm, but I again have cyano. My phosphates are down to .5 and nitrates are at 20, still the bacteria. I'm thinking I need to increase flow in the area it seems to like to grow in, it's the same as last time. I would definately get the problem fixed so you don't keep getting it, as opposed to relying on a quick fix, and be in the situation I'm in now.
