I got a frag of Utter Chaos which has taken off from 2 heads to 6 in 1 week but it came along with a hitchhiker. (CyanoBacteria) it is only on this plug and spreading. I have already mounted the frag. What is the best way to stop this before it spreads to other stuff in the tank?

Any suggestions?

Being that the frag has already been secured you might want to get yourself a soft brush and use this to remove the Cyanobacteria. You'll definitely upset the polyps in the process, but you won't hurt them.

If I scrub the cyano inside the tank will it spread to other areas or should I just take it out of the tank and scrub it

It'll spread I fought it for a couple months and would always think its gone and it would pop up again. finally gave in and dosed Chemi-clean and no traces of it been 6 months now
