I have coralline that has recently started to grow on my back wall. It seems to be growing quite well but the rest of my tank is getting a bit of a Cyano problem. Nothing too major but I have to manually remove a decent amount every week during my weekly water change (Biocube 32 - Weekly 3 gallon change - I shoot for 10% of total, with water displacement, I assume 3 gallons is at least 10%)

I also have some other green algae growing on my back wall, I assume a bit of turf but not sure. I was under the impression that once coralline started growing your tank was in good shape and it would out compete other forms. Any tips to get rid of Cyano?

I run Intank media basket with matrix and chemi pure elite.

Also worth noting... tank has been up and running for 10 months
