So I have been getting a lot of GSA in my 15 gallon tank, and was wondering if any of you know what I can do about it.
For note, I do have a nerite snail, however I think it is too much for him to eat on his own haha. Poor Pablo.
Anyways, I've heard you need to add phosphate to get rid of it, and I checked, I have 0 phosphates. Is this true, and if so, what product do y'all recommend I add?

GH: 5-6 aka 89.5 to 107.4 ppm
KH: 3 aka 53.7 ppm
I have been dosing NilocG's Thrive S, but I'm not sure it's cutting it. I do 3 pumps, 3x a week (MWF). I'm bummed that I've yet to see any nitrites/trates while dosing this fertilizer. I think I did a water test once where it was 40 nitrates but that's it.
I have 5 ADFs (frogs), 3 Amano shrimp (hence ThriveS
), 3 otos, and various pest snails + Pablo the nerite.

My anubias in particular has some edges that broke off and have never come back, and my s repens is beginning to get some holes in it, as well as the algae. Any recommendations on what I should change? Is this fertilizer just not right for me?
Any advice helps
