Default Help with cyano

Hi been running a zeovit system for over a year now and it's been very good , had a whitespot outbreak about 5 months ago and lost a lot of fish , rest went into to qt and ran fallow for about 75 days , during that time I had some major outbreaks of cyano , been over a month now and fish are back in tank , but this cyano is still very bad , I bought some cyano clean and have been dosing that recently , my levels of ph is undetactable on salifert and also my nitrate is , does anyone have any idea why cyano has taken over or how to get rid of it before I lose my sps corals , which do look a little browner now ,thanks in advance

Can you please post a picture of the cyanos ?

Please also tell us the net volume of your system, your actual dosing regimen and how much CyanoClean you have dosed for which time range.

Have you already checked the quality of your RO water with a accurate TDS meter ?

I'd go ahead and do 3 days black out since most of your system is covered with it. Cyano clean helps to keep things under control, but at this point it doesn't work (ime). Keep dosing cyano clean and zeostart daily, but spongepower and zeobak twice a week. Hopefully someone more experienced jumps in and gives you the exact milliliters on them. I'd stop dosing anything else, but also ZeoZym and coral snow once a week. Keep your skimmer working 24hrs during the blackout and you can continue to feed your fish as usual. As a side note, you can go ahead and add chaeto, if you have the space. It works well with zeovit, I'm using it w/o any problems.

I would syphon out as much as possible that would be the fastest way to clean the tank.
The other methods take time to go away
You can always try A-balance which works against it. There are a number of other products that are not anti biotics that do the same and some that are anti biotics which you might want to stay away from

Personally, I haven't had any problems and you can read positive comments of people in forums like r2r.
Although, I suggest you to do it, there are other ways, if you feel uncomfortable with this, don't worry. Another way is chemiclean. Yes, it is a chemical, but has lots of positive feedbacks in the forums including Tidal Gardens. You can check him out in YouTube.
Can you also give some info about your lighting and how many hours you're on? Do you have filter socks and how often do you change them? What's your daily feeding schedule?? And what's your water change schedule?? You can't believe how much you can reduce the cyano by siphoning and changing the water(like %20-30) just after it.
