Having an extremely bad fight with cyano, almost scraped my entire tank but cyano seems to not be regenerating as quickly. Not quite finished with the war but have been able to control it with more frequent water changes--would prefer to starve it than chemically treat. Cyano choked out probably half of all my corals 😩 I'm trying to prioritize my battles here, as I am also trying to figure out a rise in heat in the tank. Not sure if that played a role in the cyano?? Peak temp with lights on is about 83, which probably isn't helping the surviving corals. I switched out my Koralina for my smaller one to see if that was it, but doesn't appear to be so. I'm thinking the stock pumps, Accelas, at 12w each may be heating up the water, they are +2 years old now. Thinking with going with Tunze 1073.008--they are a bit slower in flow but their wattage is minimal and I heard they are much more efficient?? Funny enough my monti forest fire didn't seemed very phased at all by the mess. However, sps are just a bit out of my league at this point, so thinking of going with easier corals first like LPS and shrooms first, after things stabilize. Current tank parameters, sg 1.024, ammonia 0, nitrates 15 ppm, dkh 9, calcium 400. Have 1 lawnmower blenny, 2 percs, 1 watchman, 1 springeri damsel, a strawberry conch, emerald crab, scarlet hermit, zebra snail, urchin, rock anemone, forest fire monti, duncans, small frogspawn, small acan, and some xenia. Filtration, from top to bottom is filter sock, polyfilter, carbon, changing 5-10 gallons a week at the moment. Any advice on cyano and pumps would be appreciated, this has been on going for weeks now and I'm starting to wear again 😞 I love my tank and hope I can help it bounce back to a new glory!
