i have heard seachem flourish works well for reef tanks. A potassium nitrate solution is another option. If you dont want to dose something you could slowly increase your feeding amounts

Brightwell NeoPhos is good stuff.  I am guessing you already thought about just feeding more, getting another fish, not using as much media or whatever for filtration?

 

NeoNitro for nitrates as well.

It’s really good.  The directions are pretty spot on with the numbers they say it will raise to.

I used phytoplankton, not only did my phos go up but it boosted my pod population, corals are happy too.
