Some, in fact many, marine fish foods will raise phosphates considerably . Due to the fact that their protein base is derived from fish meal, and fish meal has a high bone content. Bones are high in phosphorus . True fish need some phosphorus in their diets but marine fish foods that contain more than phosphorous necessary add to the phosphate problem.

Marine foods that use artificial colourants for instance, there’s no need and the colourants leech wasting carbon and other adsorbent medias. Your aquarium is a closed system it is better to only add what you need. Excessive oils, yes it makes the food more palatable but food can not be judged by the fishes eagerness to accept it.
