Phosphorus is one of the basic building blocks of living matter. It is present in every living creature, and in the water of every reef tank. Unfortunately, it is present in excess in many reef tanks, and that excess has the potential to cause two big problems for reef keepers. The first is that is can drive excessive growth of undesirable algae. The second is that it can directly inhibit calcification by corals and coralline algae. Since most reef keepers don’t want either of these things to happen, they strive to keep phosphorus levels under control.
