A bit more details on your tank would help a lot; Cyano is normal in early stages of tank cycle; I wouldnt mess up with cyano control and such for now;
What do you mean "raised the feeding"?
Tank : Red Sea Reefer 350
Skimmer : Bubble Magus Curve 7
Light : AbyssWare Barracuda ReefPro x 2
Flow - 2 x Jecod RW8

Hi, welcome to ReefBase

Yes as db75 says, params would be useful, phosphate and nitrate particularly.

Also pics would be handy (under normal daylight ideally, not blue lights), there are other things which can look similar but need different treatment.

Edit: forgot to say, that if it is cyano,  @Colombo 's product, Mycosidal did the job for me.
