It seems unlikely to me that phosphate would cause the problems you observed,
but then I don't know what would cause those problems so I suppose that one
guess is as good as another.
Per manufacturer's recommendations, you would probably want two bags of
flourite in a 20 gallon tank. I think that makes a fairly shallow
substrate. You might want to pump it up a little with a layer of gravel over
or under the Flourite, depending on what you want to be most visible.
