Safe to turn off lights to get rid of cyano?

I don’t know much about pocillopora, but if everything is healthy it should be fine. Corals go through storms where they don’t see sun for days and survive.

72 hour black out is common. The only issue is, it's a bandaid without finding the cause and correcting...it will return.

I just bought a protein skimmer, and have done a bunch of water changes, so hopefully it will stay gone.

I just turned on the lights for a second to see how everything’s going, and I found my mini maxi nem upside down on the sand? He just fell on to the sand and wasn’t moving, but I turned the lights back on, and he immediately flipped himself over? Is this normal? Should I be worried at all?
