    Unless they have changed it due to it being banned in the netherlands and germany it most def contains erythromycin sulfate.

    Also are you doing any carbon dosing? Vodka, vinegar, sugar?

    That looks like dino not cyano, and unfortunately its one of the hardest to get rid of. Dealing with a small bout of it myself, but basically the only real proven means to get rid of it, that I have found, is hydrogen peroxide dipping the rocks. It will return though if you dont identify and fix the cause

    I agree. Dino not cyano.

    Did you ever test your levels? have a nitrate/phosphate issues somehow and need to fix that.

    If it's Dino the levels for Nitrate and Phosphate will probably read zero from the Dino's using it up. Peroxide works as can a 3 day blackout. If it's Dino's you may also start to see snails and other animals that may try to eat it die off depending on which type of Dino it is. Having said that there are many different types of Dino's and the treatment that works for one may not work for another. Certain Sea Hares will also eat Dino's but again if it is one of the toxic varieties the sea hare will most likely die as well and has a very demanding diet after the Dino's are gone. Even though testing may show zeroes something is feeding the Dino's and you need to reduce your levels through gfo/nopox, reduced feeding or other means or they will come back. If it is Dino's one of the worst things you can do is water changes, it seems counter intuitive however water changes seem to fuel Dino growth. There's a product called Dino X out as well though or sure reviews seem to be about 50/50 you may want to read up on it though.
