 Phosphates  from  the  source  water  is  generally  very  minimal.  To  bring  down  phosphates,  i  would  suggest  more  water  changes  about  30%  weekly,  add  some  GFO  (granular  ferric  oxide),  or  a  branded  Po4  Remover  (RowaPhos,  Phoszorb,  etc)  
 
 As  for  the  diatom  algae,  we  all  get  it  from  time  to  time..  Its  bloom  is  due  to  an  increase  of  Nitrates  +  Silicates  +  Phosphates  in  your  tank  water.  Increased  silicates  from  your  source  water.  A  RO-DI  unit  should  help  with  this...

 Get  rid  of  the  starfish  because  in  no  time  he'll  start  to  chew  on  u  r  button  polyps....Always  go  for  a  reef  safe  starfish  if  u  r  gonna  have  one.
 Because  i  too  was  fascinated  by  the  color  of  the  red  knob  starfish  and  bought  him  immediately  and  after  three  weeks  i  saw  my  button  polyps  were  in  distress  and  one  day  when  i  was  observing  the  tank  at  night  he  started  to  chew  on  my  green  button  polyps.

 Hi,
 
 GatorX:  Will  try  that..
 
 Didnt  realise  that  the  starfish  will  cause  any  harm..as  you  said,  even  i  was  carried  away  by  its  beauty.
 
 Can  someone  help  me  in  getting  some  hardy  corals  for  my  tank??  Really  want  to  start  with  my  reef.
 
 
 Regards
 Tauseef

 Looking  good.....  Have  you  got  the  cleaner  wrasse  feeding?
 
 The  MP40's  are  definitely  worth  it.  Expensive,  but  quality  products  are  seldom  cheap.  Most  people  would  save  a  lot  of  money  in  the  long  run  if  they  realized  that.  You  shouldn't  have  any  problems  with  them,  and  even  if  you  do,  you  can  pretty  much  buy  every  single  part  separately.  Had  mine  for  3  years  now....awesome.
