    Is this diatoms? I did have some small patches of red cyano so I ran two cycles of chemiclean and this stuff is still around, so it cant be cyano. Any ideas?

    I thought it was but they dont have the typicall integral air bubbles like dino has. I was thinking maybe diatoms resulting from the tank move? When i moved the tank i added some "new" cured and soaked rock that started as dry marco rock.

    Oh, also, after two cycles of chemiclean, its MUCH MUCH better, but there is still some remaining. Im thinking ill give the tank a 3rd round of chemiclean and possibly do some trials with Peroxide dosing.
