I have went round and round w/ Cyano over the years and it can be a pain. The correct answer to solving this is to fix the underlying problem ie. lights, nutrients, etc. I'm sure you have heard them. If not let me know an I can give you the details.
If the issue is bad to the point where you risk loosing corals and you can't seem to get it under control using the normaly suggested methods I would use Boyd's Chemiclean and not red slime remover. I used red slime remover many years ago and it knocked out the cyano but also knocked out the good bacteria allowing other types of algae o go wild. It finaly ended w/ me tearing down th whole tank and bleaching it and starting over. I can't garantee the Boyds stuff won't cause issues b/c afterall adding any kind of chemical to a reef is risky, but it has worked well for me in the past. It actualy leaves my water crystal clear. I need to do some research to see how this stuff actualy works b/c its not supposed to be an antibiotic like red slime remover.
If your problem is minor do some water changes and turn off your lights, cover the tank so its in total darkness for 2-3 days and see if that helps. That works pretty well unless the problem is real bad.
