I have used API Phos-Zorb while cycling my tank . Currently am using Seachem's Seagel. You can search for both the products. Btw there are many Phosphate removers available ex: Seachem phosguard/purigen/Seagel (myself using) / Fluval sea phos clear etc ..

Try to procure few mangrove plantlets and keep in your sump with a 11 watt cfl on..they will munch on all no3 and po4s.
Thanks & Regards..

Added Seachem Seagel as phosphet remover. Tank rock covering with brown (30%), green (30%), black(30%) and purple(10%).
I also noticed some sponge like growth (like we can see in rotten food) in some places of rock. It first appear as white , but become black in few days. Are they good or bad need clarification please.
Tested Water on 14th day :
Ammo : 1 PPM.
Nitrite : >5PPM
Nitrate: 10-15 PPM.
PH : 8.2-8.4.

Do i need to check other parameter like phosphate , ca and dKH too????
