cyano algae / water changes

the past few months ive been using a busted RODI machine - took it to my trusted LFS and they said it was 140?
been using this water for over 3 months now.
how many do u think i need to do and how often?
i have 5 anemones in my 29 gal biocube so its hard on the nems doing such large water changes.

do u think 25% changes every few days for a month would get the red crap/algae off my rocks?

I have had cyano growing right off my returns in one tank. So, I am not a believer in the "need more flow" theory.
IMO the water changes will defiantly help with the situation.

Here is an article I found regarding the Cyano

And another,

And finally another,

I hope this helps.
