I've cleaned everything so I know it's not the equipment. How can I remove it from my sand bed? I siphon it now. Can you go into detail on how it can be coming from my live rock as well? I really think you are spot on and its probably one of those two or BOTH! Thank you!!!!

Well first off what is your phosphate testing? And you will also wanna test your RO water just to be positive its not the source.

It could be coming from your live rock if its newer live rock or full of detritus/uneaten food. Not really likely to be the source in most cases.

Also what filtration are you running and if you use media or filter pads, how often are they cleaned and/or replaced?

Edit: I see it says on your profile Bio filter. What is this? A wet/dry trickle filter?
