it's not about how many fish you have, it's about how much you feed.
if you have extra nutrient, always mean you dont export more or equal to what you put in.

Dont let me know where u lived if u have a nice pair of clownfish in ur tank!^_^

Like stated above the problem is coming from type/amount of food you are adding to the tank. Now a days there are very aggressive ways to get phosphates to almost zero. A buddy of mine uses lanthanum chloride on a regular basis with fantastic results. He did lose a fish but he does not believe it was related to the lanthanum. Enough GFO will also take care of your phosphate issue, but that will be at a much higher cost.
