    are you dosing bacteria? suggest starting with that. microbe lift special blend is good. dose 0.5 ml of reducer every morning for a week and test your phos levels. then up it to 1ml of reducer if necessary after first week. then test again and if necessary up to 1.5ml per morning. dose bacteria once a week.

    how old is your tank? if it is not mature put a phosphate removal resin in instead.
