WATER PARAMETERS: P04/GH too high, C02 too low

Can someone help me decipher this, please?

A complete description of my set-up is in my signature block.

Seems my P04 and GH is way too high, C02 is way too low. Where should the parameters be? How do I bring my water in line with this?

Here's my tap parameters:
PH: 7.3
KH: 30
GH: 60
Co2: 2.5
Ammonia: 0.05
N03: 0.1

Here's what I have:
PH: 7.0
KH: 60
GH: 200
Co2: 10.2
Ammonia: 0.05
N03: 0.0

Just tested P04 and it = 5.0

Any help and advice is ALWAYS appreciated, but please go easy on me, I need pretty basic instruction. I'm REALLY new to all this and it quickly becomes overwhelming.

Much thanks.
