    So all of you having cyano issues, go to your pharmacy and a small bottle of hydrogen peroxide, a syringe and some tubing.

    where ever you have cyano, inject 1ml of HP in it or just under and WHAM! it goes...

    now dont add to much as it can cause a reduction in redox, at most use 2ml at a time.

    I got peroxide, but I am just scared to add it to the dt, I bath fish in it, it is safer than formalin for baths.
