I agree with Itzme (and Sean), add the DI, 65 is too high.

I can replace all three filters in my RO/DI system for $30, the membrane is another $38. The Culligan filters costs as much as I paid for my whole system originally.

If the color is correct in your pictures, your algae is much more green than what forms on my glass. Mine is more of a brownish color.

I have a Phosphate colorimter if you want an accurate reading, most test kits are questionable for phosphate.

10 nitrate also sounds high (for a reef). Water changes will help this as well as cutting back on feeding.

HTH,
Ken
