Also there must have been some bubble algae in the tank but I had not seen it until recently when it's just taken off like crazy.
I've been struggling with cyano for months and done multiple chemi-clean treatments without success. Gone through 4 x 200g boxes of salt in the last 2 months with water changes and still every day red cyano...took the tank dark for a week but all that did was hurt the surviving SPS.
It will be beat, but i'm pretty frustrated right now.

Iíve been struggling myself keeping some coral happy. Sps just faded away. Got an icp test done and it showed I had low salinity. Thatís what I get for not buying a good quality one with proper calibration fluid. Iíve made so many changes to the filtration too. I made a stand alone filter sock unit that holds 3 7x19 5 micron socks. Seems to be the best Iíve had for clearing the water. I must make a video.

That would be interesting to see. I admit I have not calibrated my refractometer in a long while...will do that tonight.
