I think you should stop MB7 and Reef roids dosing altogether. Might be fueling your cyano.
Yeah not going to feed Reef Roids for a while, until all cyano is long gone. My thought on MB7 is since its a bacteria supplement then it should help with the cyano by out competing it. So far its not helping I also dont dose it regulary, once a week when I think about it and only half the ULN recommened dose. The cyano started to show up when I was not dosing MB7 at all because I ran out for a few months. But it wont hurt to stop dosing it to see if it helps.I think you should stop MB7 and Reef roids dosing altogether. Might be fueling your cyano.
Sorry miss typed. I have not treated with hydrogen peroxide, I may treat with it if its dinos. Nothing from the Reef Squad on this I guess.
I will give it a try if all else fails. Melevsreef/Marc is awesome. Wish he would give me some of his high nitrates lol.I had a type of cyano after using an algae killer that Chemi-clean never phased a bit. Turns out there are lots of strains of cyano. I used RedCyanoRX from Melev's Reef and it killed it in 3 days! Different drug for different strains. I had no ill effects on fish or inverts. Follow directions , aerate well. Might work for you, I hope so. Cyano sucks, not as bad as dino's, but it sucks, kills your enthusiasm for reefing.
Thanks for the heads up! It will be much better when the hashtag issues get resolved.Sorry brother, the hashtags have not been working reliably. I will alert RS. I have no dino experience at all.
Not doing the H2O2, was just a thought if all else fails. I will get a microscope if needed but not wanting to by something I will use once or twice.A microscopic picture would be very valuable in trying to help. Even if it is cyano there are different strains. Chemiclean only really seems to help with spirulina, while plain old regular cyano does respond to H2O2. I would not treat with H202 if it's dinos. Peroxide is indiscriminate and actually has sometimes made dino problems worse (presumably by taking out competition).

I run oxydators too, but my understanding was that the catalysts break down peroxide. I’m sure some h2o2 escapes but do you think it’s a significant amount?I'll agree with this. I've used it at 1ml per 10g with some success. Now I use a söchting oxydator for continuous H2O2 addition.
