So, how do you control dissolved organics? Your weekly water changes could export about 15% of the dissolved organics but that could be much less than what is being produced each week.

Carbon dosing or using biopellets can increase organics and actually increase Cyano rather than slowing it down. Either method requires a decent skimmer that is running pretty wet.
