for comparison i ran to my local store and had them test

PH 7.6
FC 3.0
TC 3.0
CH 260
CYA 60
TA 90

Every time i have them test they tell me my phosphates are too high. this test showed 500ppb. Is phosphates something i should be worried about?

Theoretically the phosphates act as fertilizer from r algae. Since the fc keeps the algae from vowing it's not an issue
