I have not dealt with it so I cannot really give any input. What are your phosphate and nitrate levels at?

Hi, what are parameters NO3/PO4?

I see a popular marine fish shop has an outbreak of cyano in their main display tank. I know they have a pretty decent treatment but I can’t remember the name they said they where using.

I added a o2 scrubber to my skimmer. The increased oxygen really helped with the cyano in my tank. You could give it a try.

Yep. I got it from seahorse. It hooks up to the skimmer. Can’t think of the name of it.

I took the easy option and used Chemiclean.
I had to order from the US because it's prohibited in Europe...something to do with it being an antibiotic
