I have battling what I thought was cyano for over a month, nothing that should have worked actually worked, was doing weekly water changes and it always came back with a vengeance so I took out my sons microscope and had a look, pics are attached as I am not even sure what I’m looking at or if I did it right.... they do move very quickly and the one with the really close up had all kinds of things moving quickly around it (I have videos but not sure I can upload them here)

tank info
4 months old
Nitrites 0
Ammonia 0
Nitrates 5-10
Phosphates 0 (I just can’t get a phosphate reading even when I do the higher sensitivity test)
