Stubborn Cyanobacteria

schmartiepantz

Hi!

I have two tanks that both have cyanobacteria. I've tried getting rid of it through manual removal, blackout treatment, shorter photoperiod and dosing "blue exit", but the stuff just keeps coming back. If erythromycin was a viable option I would use it.

The tanks are both planted and have a light fishload. I have never measured any nitrates, nitrites or ammonia. The fish look happy and healthy, but the the tanks don't.

I continue to remove the cyanos with every water change, but it never goes away.

I welcome any advice on how to deal with this problem.

I feel your pain. Had my own run in with cyanobacteria a while back and the ONLY thing I found that got rid of it was Ultralife Blue Green Slime remover
It worked quick and didn't mess with my cycle, fish, or plants. Try it out and hopefully it'll do the same for you. Good luck
