I am having phosphate trouble. The api test kit shows almost a .25 reading. It's way out of control and without a reactor the media doesn't do anything

Well, I got suckered in by saltwaterfish.com's 25 buck deals again. God I love them. got 2 more double rics, blue and orange this time, a green plate, new blue symphodium, candy cane, 2 headed torch, and a green goniopora. Debating on which tank I should introduce them too. I'm thinking that I have the 55 back under control aside from the hair algae that is growing on my rocks atm. If I had a CUC larger than 2 blue hermits and like, 3 snails that wouldn't be an issue...and it def won't be an issue once my new rocks are done curing and the pump in there will start powering my dual reactor. I ALMOST got a Grube's Gorgonian...I wanted it pretty bad lol. I'll try a gorgonian that will feed off of light later on.

Here's my FTS. Have a small leak from my overflow. It is either the flexhose or how it is connected. And my aqualifter stopped pumping. Not that I'm concerned...just a smaller mess on my floor. Tried to fix it and flooded my sump...it can keep running with a bucket under it.

Should I start moving my coral back over to the 55?

If you've got the plumbing issue under control and you think it's time, why not add them back?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

All under control. I had so much crap scrubbed off in my tank it clogged the pre filter and was acting weird. I moved the ric and scroll into the 55 at lights out. Duncan is staying put. Him and his 5 mini bristles are too cool to move atm.
