Very interesting post, Tim. I know I have too much phosphate due to high
fish load and fish feeding. I recently bought some PhosGuard and put it in
the filter. It has made quite a difference. That velvety algae that tends
to like the glass and higher leaves has almost gone away and I have less
spot algae too. I like having lots of fish so this may be the answer for
me. I guess there is such a thing as having *too few* fish.

I'd like to have your PhosGuard but it seems rather far to ship.
