I started to get some Cyno in the dead areas of my tank where the water movement was poor.
This is what I did and it seemed to work.
Hit the Algea with a power head. Everytime I saw some I would blast it.
Then I bought a wave maker and made sure that I had good water movement through out the tank. I am not saying you need a wave maker but adding good circulation wont allow the algea the settle well. maybe an extra PH
Lighten up on feedings. I feed every other day.
I cut mt MH
lights from 10 hours a day to 8
After a few weeks and regular water changes with RO
water it went away.
My tank is only a few months old and I've gone through a few small spurts of algea problems. Things seem to be getting better. hopefully yours will too.
I am sure others can give more advide.
