Phosphates come from two main sources. Food and tap water. Alot of your food esp. frozen and flake will add phosphates to your water. You should feed flake very sparringly and rinse your frozen food off before adding it to your tank. As a worker at a large water municipality I know that phosphates are added to treat tap to make it good for us humans. But not for our reef tanks.

I have read that about flake food before I try only feeding it every other day and very little when I do Is this sparringly enough?
