    Any ideas why I'd have cyano in my biocube? All that is in there is corals. I check my Nitrite, Nitrate and Ammonia once a week and they've been zero since I started approximately two weeks ago.

    In your case it may have something to do with flow. What do you have for flow?

    Well I never got that pump and my cyano is no longer to be found. I will be getting another pump soon, but just wanted to update you guys. Thanks for the suggestions.

    since the biocube is small, it is easily contaminated by water pollutants, make sure you do very frequent water changes with real ocean water or Reverse osmosis water

    My theory is that it is caused by a low ORP.
