    Yes that is correct, for a 150g that dose will add 0,75mg/L PO4

    So just to confirm, the mix you have is liquid? If yes, add 2 ml to the aquarium directly or put 2mL in 18mL water and add 5mL, 4 times per week.

    No need to dose the flourish trace anymore, by and large.

    Also make sure that the mix only has traces and no ammonia, urea, etc

    Then to 80g add RODI until the total volume is 1L
    Check if it fully dissolves in a few hours, let me know if not.

    20mL will add 0.2mg/L to 150 gallons, so you can add 5ml 4 times per week.

    It may help to add some(2-4l acetic acid(or filtered vinegar) to prevent mold

    You can get a canister of distilled water from many supermarkets, usually in the auto section.

    With tap you risk microbial contamination and other reactions.

    You seem to have a good mix of debris, diatoms and cladophora. Blow away the debris into the filter or clean it as much as possible.

    The brown algae will go away once the tank is a little more established and when nutrient levels are higher. Harder water seems to favour them.

    The bad news, cladophora will not go away on its own. Spot dosing with excel or H2O2 will prevent it from spreading, but you will have to be very rigorous.
