Aim your power heads more towards the sand it will help some
also big WC is another thing that will help
if your water isn't the best I would suggest buying some distilled water to use till you can get a rodi system
well water is one of your worst enemies with sw tanks
your local pet store should also have a product called phos-ban
it comes in several different ways if you have a HOB filter they sell it in filter media that can be cut down to size
it will help a lot along with water changes and lots of flow a skimmer would also help
cut back feedings to every otherday cut back time on lights to 1/2 of what you usually use

Cheers, well it's on the rocks what's left of it so if pointed them towards the rock instead would that help. I buy ro with salt from the lfs and test are good when I test and lfs tests so think was because I was feeding to much to long. I got a protein skimmer aswell forgot to say but notice wasn't set right so must of knocked it when cleaning before but it's fine now and since I've cut back on lighting and feeding I don't get as much as b4 my glass would be covered within a week so will try more w/c over next few wks and will see before I cut back more on feeding as they are really only eating once aday as only put a little bit of flake in to fed them for bout 30 seconds and never see and left over food

I have it in my Refugium, do I need to do anything for it or leave it alone?

I would take a day and overhaul your refugium. Scrap the glass and siphon out the cyano
