OOp- Yup. I went to remove my po4 cubes from my reactor and I think it made a little dust spread. Now the po4 went from 0ppm to 3ppm

Might not be a true reading, if there is cloudiness of calcium phosphate in the water.

How would you handle this situation of fluke gross dosing of disodium phosphates in a 91 gallon? (and the algae and bacterial blooms to come for the next few months)

I think lanthanum is a reasonable approach.
Ok So just dosing lanthanum will suffice? No more water changes and siphon on the substrate? I took my sump apart and cleaned up all of the white stuff all over. Lots of clumps and powdery film on the glass and equipment. been dosing bacteria.

That is the route I would take.
