    Always always always practice safe reefkeeping. You do not want to get a case of water herpes. It is not fun oh the horror.

    may I ask what kind of salt you use?
    I'm looking to gather some data from people with Cyano for some research I'm doing.

    I too had and still do just not as bad Cyano bacteria. I also like zuatrapatuare was using instant ocean. I now use the reef crystals. It has reduced quite significantly . I used to have to siphon my sand every week, it has been 3weeks now without needing it. Good luck with your hair algae Erin! ........ Water herpes. Hahahaha

    Heres another for instant ocean and a GD cyano problem. Didn't consider the salt, maybe it's time for a change. Don't give up hope Erin, my tank is pretty shameful at the moment too.

    We're just now to the point where I'm okay with taking pictures of it again.

    It's getting there. Slowly but surely.

    I knew what I was getting into with the little tank.

    I don't have any cyano or HA issues in my current tank and had very little cyano and HA when I was running the 7 gal edge nano. I'm using seachem reef salt.
    Good to hear your winning the battle Erin :thumbsup:

    Update!

    I adopted a jammy cardinal from a local dude and he broke off some other stuff for me, too. Wooo finally making a comeback after the move.

    Right? He has a mated pair who would just beat the crap out of her when they spawned.

    She's probably three inches plus nose to tail.

    It is! Pink is Monti... Then there's green... Something (wooly bully or something like that?) and a different green something else.

    I'm not good at sps. Or their names. So we'll see.
