Default It's Cyanobacteria! Questions about tea!

I have been fighting what I thought was pythium and/or algae for months. After trying everything and doing some more research I have figured out that it is in fact Cyanobacteria. My research suggests that the only course is to try microbe tea. I do not understand why Voodoo juice is not working, but tea might. I need a cheap way to make a new batch of quality tea every 48 hours, and tips about concerns with its use. I have my air pump and stone, and a container to make it in. What ingredients should I use? What ingredients should I NOT use? Do I have to monitor tds and ph in the brew? Will I kill my tea when I ph my res? Any common mistakes you can help me avoid? Thanks so much for your help so far.

Ok I finally found a recipe on youtube that I like. I will bubble 1 gallon of RO water with 1/8 teaspoon of great white, a small handful of Ancient Forest in a nylon, and 1 teaspoon of NPK RAW molasses for 48 hours every 48 hours and add it to the 22 gallon reservoir. Hope that's enough great white because that stuff is expensive.
