1) Find the source and remove or reduce it (source water, foods, etc.)

2) Run Polyfilters, Phosguard, etc. to remove excess phosphates and other nutrients from the water after the source is located.

Peppermint Shrimp:
Crush two tbs minced mint leaves (no stems) with the juice of two limes, two tbs of sugar and a shot of light rum. Marinade eight cleaned jumbo shrimp for two hours in fridge or overnight (overnight is best). Skewer and salt shrimp. Broil or grill over medium high heat until shrimp become opaque (apx. two and a half min per side). Serve with black beans cooked with garlic, green onions, bacon and topped with a slice of lime.

Switch to RO\DI water. Even if you just start using it for you water changes, eventually you will be all RO.
