Youi should test the source anyway to see where your "starting point" is. You can add phosphates to your tank thru various means - flake foods often, frozen cubes food not rinsed, etc, but you should test your source anyway I think.

I use Ro/Di everything comes up negitive. I do get a trace with the salt mix though, which I had brought up here and told that was pretty normal. I'm going to try the reactor since it seems to have good reviews.. Idont have a good HOB filter to just put media in unfortunatly. Thanks for the help!
