If cyano just use red slime remover ultralife or chemi clean. Super easy and all the cyano will be gone in a few days. In my case it never came back. But if its dino then you just have to wait it out. Maybe get more cuc eg lots of snails emerald crab helps too

i went through the same problems as you, both cyano and dino and also was very eager to "cure" the problem.

there will be Dino X for Dino. due to my stupidity, i overdose (too eager) and had all my corals wiped out over 1 week.

i would strongly recommend just using bacteria... special blend, microbac7, etc... 

let nature take its course... have to be very very patient and let the tank mature, if not u'll burn out trying to solve all the problems.
