    Do not spend money on products that will not work. Your aquarium is newly "cycled" so you can try leaving your aquarium lights off for a week or two as your nutrient levels etc come into balance. I did that with my cyanobacteria break out, it died off and now i only have a very very small amount (which is slowly but surely reducing). oh and what i did buy was Seagel pellets at Shaun.
