What water parameters change when fish are overfed too much -- causing algae blooms ??

too much Phosphorous ?
too much Nitrate ?

I notice some brands of fish food have a MIN of 1.0% Phosphorous, while some have a MAX of 0.6%.

Some food like shrimp pellets seem to indicate they have zero...
(I doubt I could dump a whole container in without causing damage )...

What foods do you guys recommend for community tanks with a lot of fish like tetras, danios, corys, and angels ?
