    if you want to remove it fast, you can try this product Byod Chemiclean.

    but you should try to find out the cause of cyanobacteria, could be:
    - overdosing of carbon/biopellets
    - high no3/po4 or imbalance of no3/po4
    - flow not enough
    - your light bulb is too old and need change
