I have a lot of algae and my API kit says 0 phosphates. I guess it must be my imagination

What am i doing wrong?

Depending on how bad the outbreak is it will consume high amounts of both nitrate and phosphate (this must of been said about 10 times in this thread) and api kits are kind of pointless for phosphate. The max you want in a reef is .03ppm and the first increment on the api scale is .25 ppm (way to high).
