Or you could just attach a picture and leave pride at the door. If you want help, then show us the tank. There could be more going on that we need to see.
there a lot of cyano on the sand, rock, and glass
I'm sure its cyano and only cyano
but I will send a picture when the light came on

Thats overkill. FIRST , , , test phosphate and nitrate levels to assure theyre not Elevated.
Lights: You can reduce white light intensity OR turn off for 5-7 days. Add 1ml of Liquid bacteria such as Bacter 7 per 10 gallons during the day.
At night, dose 1 -1.5ml per 10 gallons of hydrogen Peroxide (yes safe for fish/coral). Clean filters daily and do not add NoPox or coral foods to tank for that full week. Siphon tank before dosing bacteria/Peroxide

After youre done- Add 3 snails each: Nassarius, cerith, nerite, astrea and trochus Plus 6-8 blue leg hermits.

What was your last known nutrient levels?

Did you rinse your sandbed before putting in tank?
Could be time for a good cleaning.

EM or chemiclean works great for cyano with no adverse reactions ive noticed if you dont want to get to the root of the issue and rip clean your system.

Mono, ON,
Most effective way is chemiclean I found, or use UV sterilizer and turkey baster. Then, you should try waiting a week on your water change (depending on how often you do it, if you do it every week then waiting a week should be fine). The extra bacteria build up in the sandbed helps defeat it. Thats how i got rid of it, best of luck

i wonder if it's gonna help?
The plan is 30 days of a blackout, low feeding the fish+and cyano clean by Korallenzucht.

the asking that been up to is how do I feed my fish when there is no light?
Please share any advice, tips, thought about my idea... anything will be ok...
If you want to try to starve a photosynthetic pest of light, the system won’t need to be totally dark, especially since you are thinking of going 30 days. If the aquarium is in a room that is not totally dark, there might be enough light to feed the fish.
