Soaking-up phosphate

You probably want to keep your discus happy with your regular
feeding regime. Phosphate resins are a hassle.
If you have no algae problem then why is the PO4 level an
issue? If OTOH you do have algae AND you want to maintain the
feeding status quo then I suggest using quick growing plants like
hygro polysperma or corymbosa. You may even throw in some
duckweed to really soak-up the PO4. 
Then you will have to push the balance of PO4 and NO3 so that the
PO4 is the limiting factor, i.e Sears Conlin approach.
It's a difficult balance but it is achievable.

Best of luck
