I got my ICP results back from ATI this morning. Several things are in the 'high' category...and a couple in the low. ATI gave some recommendations for dosing....and water changes. Are they spot on? Anything you see here that is an 'emergency'?

I have recently added Chemipure blue to try and bring my phosphates down.....and I do have Marine pure blocks and balls in my sump (maybe the source of the aluminum?)

Corals - mainly LPS, softies...leathers....are doing fine.

Rodi sample came back all clear.

ICP is not a perfect way to judge what is needed or excess, but you might experiment with iodine dosing (I never found it useful).

Aluminum is high, but likely not critical. Probably from some sort of white media.

Well you tank looks good! Not sure id change anything. Make sure you dont bring down po4 to fast. .2 po4 is really not an issue in your system, imo.
What level of po4 is your target?
I would like it to be .1 or below. I do have a small algae problem....probably would be worse if my tangs weren't BEASTS!

No, aluminum oxide and other ceramic materials such as Mairnepure or Phosguard or Kent phosphate sponge.
