The diatoms like most brown algae is fed by silicates and not phosphates. The DI stage filter should help with this. The cyano is a different story and follow the suggestions above. Watch out for overstocking, overfeeding, low water flow(deadspots) and the excess nutrients builing up on filters etc.
