How often you change your carbon how old is the tank do you have a light on the sump and why you keep temp so high.

I like to go with a skimmer atleast double the size of the tank. I would just do a lot of big water changes over and over and over. You have to pound the nitrates down with water changes it could take several months because the rock can absorb and continue leaching it

I run carbon change once a month. 30 g wc each week. In building a phos reactor tonight. And yes I have a light in my sump. That's the worst. Algae and cyano really bad in there.

Well at least you have it growing mostly in your sump. That's half the point of pointing a light in there. The phosphate reactor will help in sure as cyano is a nutrient issue. Cut back feeding, siphon cyano out before/during water changes, large water changes with ro/di...or ro if best you can get your best.
