ok, water has cleared, phosphates are down to reasonable levels, but now my coral beauty's fins are eroding like crazy, she is still swimming and eating just fine, any one know what the cause could be?

Any other fishes in the tank? Sometimes, other fishes can and will nibble at other fishes' fins. At least, that is what I have noticed with mine. How is the tank doing now? Any recent tests done? What were the results? I'm just curious.

Yes, use carbon. I just had an epic battle similar to yours. I did a good sized water change, put in some Phosban and some carbon. The water cleared up rather quickly.
