Dosing iron might be helpful in this situation but do not overdose as it will cause algae otherwise. Purple is a very difficult color in a nutrient poor system so not sure if it will come out as you usually have it.

Yes this is the iron supplement I have used also. 1 have usually dosed 1 drop / 25 US gallons 2 x weekly. If you start with the dosage you can dose 1 drop / 25 US gallons every other day for a week or 10 days.

It is OK, if you like to get the tissue of your corals a little bit lighter while nutrients are stabile low you can add this quantity 2 – 3 x weekly.

The dosing regimen is OK of you do not get any kind of algae but as the stocking level of corals (consumers) is low at the moment I would recommend to cut down FlatowmStop and XTra to 2.5 ml 2 x weekly.

If the PO4 level is stabile low and if your corals have already started to get lighter tissue showing good growth you might add 5 drops AAHC and 10 drops BioMate 2 x weekly to your dosing regimen. Please keep in mind there is more necessary to get all out of the corals than just adding a couple of drops from this or that product.

i know every tank is different and what works for you might not work for someone else that's why i ask questions because i'm looking for the right formula for my tank like when i posted my dosing schedule and you told me 5ml. 3x a week of xtra and fws might be to much for your tank right now so i adjusted it. if you told me mike Biomate and AAHC you might not need this at this stagei would be like ok, on to the next one but the only way i know how to get the right regimen is by trying things and asking question until i know what i'm looking for and get a handle on the Zeovit system

I totally understand your questions, this is why the forum does exist. I just not want to give anyone the impression that starting zeovit does fix every problem creating great tanks by just starting to dose some drops of this or that product.

I am more than happy if I can help so please feel free to ask questions whenever it is necessary.
