I have been fighting blue green algae for about a month now, what am I doing wrong? How can I get rid of this cr@p, it is killing my plants. I did have a huge phosphate spike, off the charts, now it's back to normal. It does not seem to be coming back in such force anymore, but it still comes back.

Here are my water params:
Phosphates: .75
Nitrates: 20
Nitrites:0
PH 7.6
Hardness: 130

I have read about this kind of Algae, and how it says that it exists in poor water quality, but I do not know what is so poor about my water.

Help!
