Yup, the cyano is coming back with a vengeance, even with the reduced lighting, the increased water movement and the Maracyn 2.

Found on another thread, Any Quickies? , that according to the "Redfield Ratio", , the cause of cyanobacteria is combination of nitrates and phosphates. They're out of the correct balance.

In my tank Nitrates measured 0 and Phosphates the same.

I'd post a picture of the increased nastiness but I've reached my photo max...
