cyano algae

so did get a good dose of cyano algae, was spreading faster than I could siphon it out.
so after reading a lot of write ups I used some red slime remover.

so night before using it I siphoned out as much as I could.
then when you make up the solution you have to turn off
the skimmer and reactors.

so day one after treatment



day 2



day 3



so after 3 days its all gone,then its a 25% water change, check all levels and get the skimmers/reactors back on.
that was two weeks ago and its all running fine.corals and fish unchanged.
