Your Bolbitus should really start turning into a weed once you start adding PO4 also.
Glad adding PO4 knock out the problem.

Let me ask a question on this high PO4 topic please, what about the 10-1 nitrate to phosphate ratio? Are you increasing the Nitrate as well?

sidetracking a bit here, but to clean the nasty dark green algae off my anubias, I swiped the leaves with some cotton dipped in 5% rubbing alcohol and the algae came off pretty clean, the leaves are doing fine, no signs of injury due to the alcohol. scrub lightly though, you dont need that much elbow grease with the rubbing alcohol. Also, be sure to wash the leaves under cold running water to get the glycerin residue off the leaves.
Sounds interesting, I had only heard of trying the 19:1 bleach solution. Anyone else ever try this? How long has it been since you did this?
