But it's definitely lower since I started running GFO... Gonna hook up a reactor in a couple weeks so hopefully knock it completely outta there with PWC's and that... The red hair algae stopped growing though, so it's making me think Nu is right!

Its very possible he is, i always lean to the higher side cause it can't hurt. I did debate on 0 or .15 if that makes you feel better

This is an instance where the hanna checker for phosphates would come in handy. It has a digital readout and goes to like .01 so you always know for sure. They are like $45-50 but was worth it for me, no more guessing. lol

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

Yea I despise phosphate kits. If anything .03 or higher is considered bad, then the kit results should be "yay" or "nay" haha... Just sayin. Thanks everyone. I'll keep you posted after the reactor goes in. I need the phosphate level down because I want to add the coral beauty soon!
