How much phosphates to support the growth rate of corals with high alkalinity?

I’m trying to raise it. I had to add a lot of fish pellets to get it at 0.04. And I’m feeding REALLY heavily of frozen LRS food. About 5 times a day of nice sized chunks. No algae in tank.

I want to know if I should keep my nitrates at 5ppm and raise phosphates to 0.10ppm? I have strong lights with mainly lps, 25% softies and lps. My main goal is fast coral growth.
