    Help me if i've got this wrong.
    ok... so cryptic zones harbour filterfeeders.
    Filterfeeders feed on food and poop particulates in the water.
    Will they only assist with phosphates by consuming particles before they decay?

    Not so much filter feeders as bacteria and copepods

    had to search for this link, but here it is

    Cryptic Zones

    a good read.

    Basically all particles, until it decayed / consumed / broken down to its final composition.
