Hello all, episode 16 stuck, and can't fix it.

Im sure this question has been asked a million times but i did a search and either too dumb or just blind i cant find them.

All my tests are coming back sweet but my water in my tanks are going green, I do water changes 20-50% every week and thats not helping at all.

My mate says I've got high phosphates. Prob cos of amount of sunlight my tanks are getting.

How do I fix this?

Yea same at Goodna apparently, called a few LFS and phos guard is flying off the shelves. All of them are out of stock.(must be all the display tank owners) I was told phos-guard only suppresses (for a short time) phosphate but does not eradicate the build up of algae on tanks

and i dont use any buffers, Local LFS said that heaps of people are having the same problem in my area so they are convienced its the water

i read in the API booklet that there is a water purifier that they sell that takes all (it says ALL) impurities out. does anyone have one?
