This restoration from 65g to 180g is now complete, complete with a basement sump and fish room.
Yikes. I too have been dealing with cyano since January… finally started dosing Microbacter7 daily and cleaning the red slime off when it gets bad.. cleaning was every four days at first and I gained a day every week or so… now things feel back to normal.. after a week all looks good still. took forever though.. I’m at 9 months on my tank.. no deaths just loads of vacuuming rocks and piles of red crud I scrape into piles on my sand bed. Here’s where I am now..5 months on here we are
After 9 months finally beat the cyano back. It got really bad and impacted my Zoas badly. I’ve added a starry blenny who I suspect killed my cleaner shrimp and coral beauty.
