Have you tried also manually removing it? In addition to the blackout period. I've done that twice with different tanks and it's been a good fix so far

Those in the 48".
I am using RO/DI, verified using a TDS.  
I have water heading in to Aquatic Dreams to get tested.  I have a test kit at home where everything came back right in the middle of what the package said was normal.  0 ammonia, nitrite and nitrate.  I'll see what AD says.
I don't know what wet skimming is.  I tried to siphon out the cyano, but it doesn't come off the sand.

Caulerpa?  I have no idea.  Yes I have a protein skimmer.  The water changes are 22 gallons for a 150 gallon + 40 sump and I do monthly (or 48 hours after chemi-clean).  Weird thing?  My sump is pristinely clean!  It has sponge growing, no cyano, and tons of pods.

What bulbs specifically are you running? You mention a light bar is why im asking. Based on all you have done it certainly seems like a light spectrum issue. Are you using rodi water for top off and water changes? What are all your parameters alk, calc, mag, this, nitrate, salinity and temp.

What is taking the nutrients out of your tank? Sounds like you are using a protein skimmer and water changes? Anything else and how often and what percentage are the water changes?

I've done the 72 hour blackout.  I've gone 3 days without feeding and then cut their food in 1/2.  I moved from flake to frozen.  I've done the chemi-clean.  I have a protein skimmer.  I've done water changes.  I've added 2 power heads.  I have new lamps coming in today, but that light bar is only 8 months old.  My poor GSP is dying off slowly.  It was growing like a weed until this all started.  My leather and sinularia are both growing and doing great though.  It has something to do with my sand.  The red is only on the sand, but the power head blowing across it isn't getting rid of the slime.

Have you done a total 72 hour blackout?  
I had cyano taking over a few months back.  Did the blackout.  I haven't had it come back.  Also, chemiclean is scary.

Those of you that just want a clipping, I'd like to meet up this weekend at the Garden House in Sugarhouse Park where the meetings are held.

Those of you that want the frag glued and encrusted on a piece of rubble rock, I am going out of town and will be back in 2 weeks. Should be plenty of time for the frags to heal.

I agree about the new bulbs. That will help rather than hurt. Years ago when I had this problem redirecting my flow helped as well. I had to make sure the water wasn't stagnant anywhere. Especially lower near the sanded. It has been so long I can't remember what else I tried.
