I have no experience at all, and I can't judge it. This is a good question. Alexander you conquered me. Are there any more objective judgments or suggestions based on your experience? I am also trying to learn how to judge whether the coral is a good color or a bad one. I'm really weak in this experience, I'm really sorry, the photo was taken. It's not very good. Can you give me advice based on your experience? Thank you. It may look a little dark and not a light feeling, but it's not terrible. Can you give me advice

In my routine work, I changed 60 litres of water and refreshed my balance. I discovered that corals are not dark and beautiful, but all colors are not so strong. Is there any way to improve this? Or isn't this my current stage? I also noticed that after a few days of my new coral, it seemed to reduce the amount of brown coffee, but the color is not so bright and eye-catching, can I give him the dose of next week, thank you G.Alexander

If you dose more of the coloration elements your corals might get darker tissue but it can also improve coloration. You need to find the balance between this.

Maybe it is helpful if you update the thread with some actual coral pictures.

Thank you for the pictures, corals do still have relative light tissue but looking healthy.

Have you already started to change anything with the lighting setup ?

I would also recommend to reduce the skimmer to skim as dry as possible as it is really much overrated for your system size.

How often and how much water do you change regular and do you use a potassium supplement to keep the level @ 380 mg ?

Hi Alexander, yes, coral is still relatively light, but it looks healthy. Lighting setup has not changed Supplier lamp shortage. That's right, the skimmer is dry. I kept changing 60 liters a week. I also kept measuring potassium values ​​between 380ppm and 390ppm, never lower than 370ppm. Repeating the same method three times is the same (salifert) using potassium chloride. Can you give me advice on the dose of potions? Thank you. correct! I found that the filter was quickly blocked. The skimmer seems to be unable to play. I don't know if it is related to start3. My np data is 0ppm. Is the water too clean. Can you give me advice? Thank you. Alexander

To Alexander, the next day after I routinely changed the water, the corals would look lighter, but I performed the task yesterday morning and evening start3 0.3ml2 times, kz cv-12 drops, xtra-6ml, AA-6 drops, today The corals appear to be saturated with health and brightness, and the colors are beautiful to each other. The current status is actually OK, maybe you can continue to keep your formula and observe it for another week. How do you do?

Lets continue with the dosing regimen for one additional week. I expect the light tissue of the coral has something to do with the overrated skimmer but as long as the corals do show growth you might be able to balance it with the additives.

With the overrated skimmer I would expect dosing more potassium is necessary, do you have a chance to cross check the level with a different test kit, maybe a friend or your local fish shop can help to rule out any issue with your test kit.

Last night, 60ml of potassium solution was added. Today, the measured potassium is 420ppm (salifert) and the Red Sea potassium test is Titrant Used (ml) 0.16 = 422 Potassium Level (ppm). Today I noticed the special bright red and red color of red. Its red color attracted me. I know that the data is a bit too high. I will pay attention to the changes of potassium.
