My 55G, about 2 months old now, sand bottom.

BRIGHT green patch on sand about 4" in diameter....really weird looking....

Vacuum it out and stir and vacuum the sand. I've seen it get started in mostly newer setups with a bit of organics in or on the substrate. Increasing water flow over that area seems to discourage it. Cyanobacteria isn't harmful to the fish. Google it and you'll find a whole lot of info.
