    Rowaphos, in fact any type of P04 remover will help, it is safer to run it 24/7 - prevention is better than cure.

    If levels are high as you say then absorbant media will take a very long time to bring them down. Rather use Pure Reef Phosphate Remover to bring concentration down to 0ppm and then passively remove with an absorbant media if you wish,
