Macro algae and chemi pure blue

Does anyone have experience with running both together? I have a 6 months old Nuvo 20 and would like to run cheato for nitrate control (was almost 50ppm before my last large weekly water change.) My only worry is that I have been running chemipure blue (5.5 oz bag) for 4 months and my phosphates have been unreadable. Experience in freshwater planted tanks has taught me that no phosphate=dead plants. Is this the same case for cheato or are ultra low phosphates good enough to grow?

Also i know the first instinct is to say feed less but I would rather try the heavy in heavy out approach than the starve my pets.
