Your question has already been answered in previous post's. (several suggested calcerous substances)
You stated on Sunday 6/26 that you have added aragonite or coral to your filter, this will take time to work (days) and thankfully so. Otherwise a rapid change in hardness along with ph would be stressful to lethal for your fish.
Cloudiness of water you spoke of in earlier post could be caused by different factors such as bacteria bloom in newly set up tank,overfeeding,overstocking,underfiltered tank,or not rinsing gravel before placing it in the tank, or not rinsing coral,aragonite added to filter.
Phosphate is added by many who keep planted tanks on nearly daily basis (see estimative index dosing) and does not cause cloudy water or algae directly.
