I am having an issue with what I think is cyano. I have researched and took the advice from them but I still can’t get rid of it.
I have lowered my white intensity on my lights, increased flow and got all of my chemicals in check but it just won’t go away.
2 year old tank
125 gallon tank
Radion gen 2 lights
Nitrate 2.37 was lower with the same outcome
Phosphate 0.028 was lower with the same outcome
UV may make cyano worse.
White light has nothing to do with the strength algae growth. This is a myth. I don't know where this comes from but anyone who says white light causes more algae clearly has never looked at the wavelengths for photopigments found in marine algae species.
Have you tried chemiclean or similar?
