Cyano/Algae

Hi guys, im starting to get cyano bacteria and green algae in my 30gallon tank. My friend says i have a phosphate problem and told me to get phos zorb made by api. My current wet dry filter has carbon. Do i replace my carbon with the phos zorb? Or can i use them both at the same time. My carbon is only two weeks old. Please advise
