I had the same problem.i took everything out and wash it with hot water.i bought a green filter pad that removes phosphates.i cut my lighting down to 6 hours and its been almost two weeks and so far its good.i no longer rinse out my filters either.i change them every two weeks.i only have six fish and a shrimp in a 75 gallon and my tests have never been bad.
