U should prolly check it if u have the test available. RowaPhos is usually good for lowering the level.
Dunno about the turbo grazers, never had them. Emerald crabs are awesome but they are slow. If ur LFS has the turbos, maybe buy 2 and see what happens?!

Oh well, than I would try the grazers than. You don't have corals so they can't knock those over

Long spine urchins are supposed to be a good algae control for aggressive tanks like yours.

Don't triggers eat urchins? I think I read that somewhere. They remove each spine and then eat them
