Setting it up coincided with covid lockdown therefore there are only 10 Amano Shrimp in...
I don't understand.
You're adding Mono potassium phosphate and then wondering why you are getting a phosphate reading of 5mgl or more? If you are adding it and you dont want it that high then decrease the dosing rather than adding a remover.
There's nothing wrong with having phosphate that high...
