feeding less, avoiding flake foods, rinsing frozen foods, 1 day fasts twice a week, reducing photoperiod, etc.
but in freshwater you want a certain degree of nitrate and phosphate, far more than is desirable in reef tank.
are you playing a balancing game right now with nitrate/phosphate?
not entirely sure how well the two compare or if it is even the same bacteria involved, but couldn't hurt.
while it is a bacteria, it is still photosynthetic so lighting plays a big part.
