That is a nice phosphate reading...I wish mine went that low! But can you tell us more about the algae? The one picture with only the blues on you can't see what you are trying to have us help with... Besides that you will always have some sort of algae growing on your glass. A magfloat or some sort of scraper is always important. Just something you can't get away from really.

I have diatoms right now. Looks kinda like what you have. Mines been set up for 2 months. I was told they would die out on their own. If your sand is new that may be your problem

I bought new sand when I set up tank. I did have a deep sand bed then I decided to take about half or more out about 6 months ago. As for powerheads I have 2 wp 40s. And I run a brs dual reactor with a es135 reef dynamics skimmer and filter socks in my sump. I also use rodi water. For lights I have 3 bridge lux led fixtures.
With my rodi I just replaced the filters and di resin. I flushed it for 10 mins. The tds say 35 ppm in 0 out. But when the water comes out of the drinking part its cloudy.
