I have just had the first test on my 80 gallon (actual water capacity) tank that has been up for 1.5 years and started with 10yr old live rock. I have just started to run RowaPhos in a filter bag and that has dropped Phosphates. The tank is LPS/Softie so no dosing of Calc, but I am dosing 30ml of Sodium Bicarb. I have a small fuge with Chaeto. I feed 3+ cubes per day to a heavy fish load. Coralline algae started growing months ago. No real problems except high nitrate and phosphate. With the old rock the tank really never had an ugly phase and no nuisance algae problems. I use Tropic Marin Pro Salt.

Current parameters tested with Hanna and Saliforte test kits,
Alk 8.3 working to stabilize this at 9
Phos .13 ~ .25 working to lower this
Calc ~ 440 stabile
Salt 1.025
Nitrate 10 - Stable
PH 8.3
Temp 78.5
What is the best way to handle the items in the red? Iron, aluminum, nickle, etc?

Is there a better/preferred way to post results? I attached report as well.

Aluminum looks quite high. Are you using any white media?

Nothing else jumps out at me as a concern.
Thank you for the review Randy. I have a couple of the white bricks and they se soft
I cut them to fit with my pocket knife. Thoughts on strontium, iodine and iron?
