Re: [APD] Phosphates too much? any alternative answers to reducin g the problem.

How old is your tank? If it is more than a couple of months old and your 
ammonia isn't 0, you've got a problem.
 Also, how heavily planted is your tank? In a tank that's moderately 
planted, plants will use up nitrogen (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate) and 
phosphorous. In a heavily planted well-lit tank with adequate CO2, you 
usually need to add nitrogen and phosporous to keep the plants happy.
 Do you have CO2? How much light do you have? How heavily planted is your 
tank? What is your pH and KH?
