    I have done everything to get rid of cyano, its been in my tank for 6 months now. I changed all my bulbs, bought a ro/di unit, put more flow on my rocks, i used to run my lights 12 hour and now down to 9 hours total I have a fuge with cheato. I try some of the slime remover but I did not have many corals in there it went away for a week and came back so I firmly beleive that if you don't find the problem why it's in here it will come back. Thats just my personnal opinion but i would not risk your beautiful tank with that stuff. I manual remove it and its slowly going away.

    Good luck love your tank by the way

    Thanks!!!

    I am leaning towards manual removal and letting it run its course. The last think I want to do is damage any SPS I have.

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    I used in once in 2006 and it worked like a charm, but I had only soft corals and an anemone. It did return like 4 months later and I adjusted the flow and it went away.

    Now my gf used it in a tank dominiated by hard corals and sps and it almost crashed the tank. Related I have no idea, but it scared me away from the stuff.

    I hear good things about it all the time, so hard to wade through what is urban sw myths and fact. I suppose if it was over running the tank I would probably give it a try.

    Good luck again, I hope it works out for you.
