Two things I've noticed.

Dinos's and Cyano (as reported) can have some sort of symbiosis

Grows all over my rocks, corals and sides as well as on cyano.
Me too. If I look carefully at my cyano, there's tons of dino in there. Cyano is a notorious nitrogen fixer, and many strains of it are diazotrophic (don't need organic or inorganic N, can make it from dissolved gas) so the dino are probably snagging some free food.
