Shireen, FYI, I know folks that really over did the PO4 thing, I mean
10-15ppm!! I've had 2ppm or so.

No algae. But they had good CO2. The PO4 is not the problem. Short of
beating folks with a cane, I've discussed the PO4=algae issue ad nauseam.
And I think I can say still after many years, that PO4 does not cause algae.
Interestingly, I've found it to be true in non CO2 tanks as well...also in
lakes/rivers with good plant mass.
