are your phosphates up? are they beige side of white? Lookup pineapple sponges

IF they are pineapple sponges, some will say fine, but one guy in VA had them so bad they clogged equipment (dig deep on google). I sucked out as many of mine as I could with a thin airline tube during water change. Remaining count has diminished on its own.
