Your algae can be consuming the phosphates giving you a false reading and its contributing to its growth.

If calcium slowly moved up to 700 then it shouldn't have caused stress. In fact the pumps and equipment are likely the only things suffering from those elevated levels. But I read a report that said in tank tests, corals did not grow any better when calcium exceeded the mid 400's
