So I took these pics of my sanded yesterday. One of the pics shows cyano which is red. The other is very brown,but not goopy like dinos, no bubbles. But very thick. I took it to a microscope yesterday and it didn't look like any type of dino. I'll post that video later. Any ideas?

Cyano can be different colors. I have little spots of both purple and dark green. Does purple and green make brown? ha... The thinner areas probably look brown.

Ok. I've been cutting back nutrients (feeding a little less) and added some GFO. I've also been dosing microbacter clean. The Cyano was pretty bad before this recent cleansing. I'll get the microscope on it again tonight and post some video.

There is cyano for sure and maybe Dino too but that could be just the lighting. If you want to be sure use a microscope but I would start to treat it as cyano for now.

What temperature do you think it too high for your reef tank?
