The blenny is a good cleaner! Won't help fight your phosphates, phos sorb will, kalkwasser will help the most, just check your KH before. What is your phosphate at?

Phosphate was .25 last time I checked, i'm in the process of getting some phosphate media and some carbon. In the mean time I've just been cleaning and siphoning as much as possible

You may be putting to much food in? Don't get me wrong by me saying your over feeding, feed so many times a day with less food. Fish need to eat 2-3 times a day, little amounts work out the best for your fish and water quality

Gotcha, i'm going to start doing that, I've just been feeding once a day. Also, something that didn't help matters much, I had a snail die and it was in the tank for about a week or so
