Zero phosphate, high nitrates!

Hi all,

I'm struggling with keeping the algae in my tank from growing. Clearly there is some phosphate due to the algae growth, but everytime I test the phosphates it's 0.

Nitrate, on the other hand, are hovering at 10 or so.

I run biopellets, so theoretically if there was some phosphates, I could reduce the nitrates..... I'm tempted to dose phosphates, but not sure if it's the best idea.

Anyone have any suggestions on what I should do?
