oh sorry i mixed up phosphates with amonia for some reason :S my pH is good according to tests, around 8.0 if i remember well, but i keep filtering the sand and rocks due to algae growth. the tank is about 2 years old.

no i actually get water from the sea, mix it with tap water to bring it to the right salinity, add tetra marine safe and then top up the tank.
