Default Noob question phosphate and phosphorus.

Well I was talking to the nice girl at the lfs today and mentioned that my brown algae is not going away she said its most likely is hi phosphates and to use a phosphate mover or neutralizer. I mention im dose NPK and she said to stop or dose less phosphorus.

So phosphates come from the phosphorus I've been adding. Should I stop all together for say a week or two or just cut my dose in half over the same time frame?
