That's a shocking amount of PO4, huh?
Ya, it is weird. I am using a Red Sea PO4 test kit and my tap water, RO/DI water and tank water all register at .1ppm with this test kit. Even after I changed all of the filters, DI resin and membrane in my RO/DI unit. This leads me to believe the test kit is not reliable.

I would strongly suggest testing the tanks Mg level as Malkore suggested
I will pick one up in the next couple of days.

Do you drip kalk and do you have a refugium with macro's?
No, no and no.
I will test Ph in the am and in the evening and let you know what the change is.

Ph in the morning is 8.0 and Ph in the evening is 8.1. I have a Mag. test kit (SeaChem) on order at the LFS and it should be here by Fri.

Not really something to be concerned about IME. If the pH is staying 8.0 or above even in the early AM, it's not a concern. Given your current alk level (4.25, very high BTW) it's not really probable this is a chemical issue anyway. I would however suggest reviewing your aeration and possible contributors to CO2.

Cheers
Steve
