It's taking over! Lol is there any proven way to get rid of it? I I have been using tap with instant ocean which I shouldn't be
To name a few.
I'm already running phosguard with no results :/
Have you checked your posphates or silicates? How often do you change your phosguatd? Is it exhausted? If you have a lot in the system, this stuff is going to exhaust faster. Its only going to keep a stable system, stable at 0 once its already there.
I am going to make a comment that always causes a stir from experienced hobbyists, but has always worked for me in the past. Upon the first signs of cynobacteria:
1) increase water flow in the area.
2) increase alkalinity to 12-14 dkh.
3) maintain calcium at 400-460ppm, not dropping below 400ppm.
I have found this to work on multiple instances personally in my home aquariums.
