    So I finally redone my aqaurium and put in some water wisteria cyperus and some dwarf hair grass and noticed this on the leaves. Is it cyano or just algae? (Working on pictures)

    It doesn't look like cyanobacteria to me. It probably is just algae or diatoms. It probably will come off when you vaccum your tank next time. :)

    You could remove it manually, but it will be a big pain and debris will be floating everywhere. I have found vacuuming it to be the easiest way to remove that stuff.

    Maybe diatoms. If it brushes off easily. Looks like the start of black hair algae or similar to me though.
