Over the past 6 r 7 months I have been battleing with cyano bacteria in my tank. No idea hwo it got there but i was away for a weekend and when i came home it had taken over and killed all my plants..
Since then no matter what I do it comes back.. I have gutted the tank and scrubbed everything ( too many times to count) replaced the sand many times, washed each plant individually, even blacked out the plants. i have boiled my drift wood, I have gone though many plants and most recently i even rinsed off soaked my filter medium in tap water( i know that will kill my good bacteria but i was out of ideas..
And yet, low and behold it is back. I dont understand it and I am super frustrated.
I jsut bought a bunch of new plants and i plan on getting shrimp.. but i cant until i figure this out.. please help : (
