Regarding Aiptasia, I propose a thought and guess of my experience (I can't say that I am correct, I have no actual experience). If Aiptasia is severely flooded, the tank situation at this time usually seems to be related to nutrient and high organic matter. In the case of "good water quality", if there is Aiptasia, it should not be flooded.

There is only 1 aptasia I can see and will treat with Aiptasia x.

Does not look like xenai to me, the last picture shows some kind which is looking like Aiptasia under the red montipora plate but I might be wrong as the picture quality is not really good.

Back to your cyano problem, as it looks like just some areas are affected I would recommend beside the treatment to manually remove them or vacuum them out while doing a water change. On the rocks brush the affected area once the cyanos where removed.

Still battling cyano, can’t seem to get a handle on it even with daily zeozyme.
Here are my stats:
Ph 8.2, kh 6.4, nitrite .1, nitrate 2, am 0, mg 1320, ca 390 and pho’s. .02.
Salt at 1.025.
Zeolite rock changed last night after 7 weeks, flow is good through reactor and carbon was changed 10 days ago.
Ro water 0 tds always.
Corals are still growing and colors are good. I have been only doing zeostart 2x daily and of course with the zeozyme I add zeobak.
Any ideas where I can go from here?
We change our 20 gallons of saltwater every week, use good salt, vacuum affected areas ...i’m At a loss
Thanks

Some thoughts 1. How long has the lamp been used? 2. Does any affected area of ​​the eye see more cleanliness? Contains parts of the rock. After using the toothbrush and vacuuming, have they returned for a while? 3. What else is there in the sump? 4. Does the RoRodi channel use "resin" as a material at the end?

If you can try to keep Kh at 7~7.5 slowly, it seems that a slightly higher kh seems to have positive help. In addition, my doubts, the current "number of corals / growth and change of water and salt mixture" seems to be not compatible with "kh 6.4". I don't know your tank situation, but this is my doubt.

1.Lamps are led’s AI hydra 26hd, 1 year old.
2. Not really
3. Sump has skimmer, zeo reactor, return pump.
4. Rodi has 2 resin filters at the end. I will also say we have 3 other tanks not on the zeo system and have no cyano in those using same salt, ro, etc.
My kh kit might be off, I have a refill on the way. When I used the Red Sea kit it was always 7-7.5 and my dosing has not changed. The salifert kit reads lower and I have not changed my dosing so I’m guessing it is truly 7 (I have ordered a refill for the Red Sea kh kit).

Is the current situation of tank still like the picture display like #297? The green part of the picture This seems unusual, is it actually such an appearance? . Are you still keeping other feeding products?

When you do those actions, does Cyanos come back again?

If it is me, I will not use Zeo Food7 for the current situation. If you are willing to replace Zeo Food7 with Zeo SpongePower, it is good to stop Zeo Food7 temporarily. The extra idea is that understanding potassium levels seems to be important (this part is not related to the Cyano issue). Are ZeoVit materials and activated carbon the Zeo brand? (Just want to confirm that they are the Zeo brand, this is good)

All zeo brand materials presently but I have used different carbon in the past if my supplier is out. Rox 0.8 carbon form bulk reef supply.
I have ordered spongepower as well and my potassium kit will be here Tuesday.

Do you use any kind of materials other than PVC pipes and silicon hoses or any kind of sponges in your system ?

No just filter floss in the cups (first 2 OF RED SEA 750) and the black sponge that is part of the system. I rinse it every 2 weeks lightly.
Thanks

You can try to dose a mixture of CoralSnow and ZeoBac or CoralSnow and CyanoClean. This has helped many in the past but I also know a couple of system where the mixture has not worked to treat the cyanos, maybe it is worth a try ?

You can first try to mix 2 ml Coral Snow with 1 drop ZeoBac / 25 US gallons dosing this mixture daily for some time, if it does not work you can get Cyano Clean using it instead of ZeoBac.
