Help with Chaeto

My tank is 14 years old....I have always had high Nitrate and Phosphate issues, and have tried everything. I am now back to a refugium, and to that end am using my center compartment in the sump, lighted by a Kessil H160 Tuna Flora. I bought a baseball size (2 of them) bunch of Chaeto and now, a few weeks later, it has practically disappeared, and my Nitrates and Phosphates are as high as always.

I am running the light on the Grow setting at almost max intensity, for 16 hours/day.

​​​​​​​A new batch of Chaeto is arriving today.*

Any suggestions as to how to get it to grow and not die off so fast?

Are you dosing anything? What exactly are your parameters and have you sent out an ICP test on your water recently?
Fish tanks are just complex math equations, but I知 not good with numbers.
