RODI, and get a GFO reactor. I personally I am sorry that I waited as long as I did on the reactor, because you can get them for less than 40 dollars, and they absorb phosphate. Chemiclean I used twice and it personally didn't work for me.

I killed coral by cutting back the lighting they needed to get ride of the cyano bacteria. With GFO you can keep the lights running.

Use only RO/DI water and increase water flow.......I had that problem once and that fixed the problem.

I would reduce the time your lights are on for sure. 15 hours a day is waaaay too much. I would cut it down to 8 daily.

How much and how often are you feeding your fish?
