    Just wanted to let you all know that after a long break from research I am back!

    My next write up will be about cyanobacteria
    So far with my initial testings it is looking promising!
    I am waiting for my new microscope to come in to validate these current and stunning findings.
    Stay tuned!

    I'm going to put you on my list to speak at Houston next year.
    This is a awesome topic to discus as many still don't know that Cyano is a Bacteria and not a algae let alone how to treat it in your tank.

    Thank you!
    I am excited to pursue this further
    Cyanobacteria is interesting and at the same time complex.
    In the last few days I have learned a lot about it and can't wait to share with others :)

    @brandon429 what is the maximum level of h2o2 you have found to be safe in a marine tank?

    I dose 70 ml in a 200 gallon system regularly. I have done as much as 400 ml. Shrimp didn't take that to well. Sps browned out but as since colored back up

    Thank you!
    So far 1ml per 2 gallons is where I am at.
    Without my microscope I am unable to conclude much.

    Oh and I am running out of cyanobacteria!

    I've used it for cyanobacteria, dinos, and currently for an algae outbreak. I'm spot treating to knock algae back. 70 ml twice a day. I'm positive I could be more aggressive just don't want to push it.

    I promise I will have this concluded as fast as I can :)
    So far h2o2 breaks cyano down in about 3 hours but I need to scope it to confirm.
