If you like to you can give it a try my recommendation is just doing this very careful starting with small quantities. I would personally not care much about the PO4-NO3 ratio as it IMO does not have a real impact.

Basically some NO3 which you might also add by increasing the quantity of fish food or the fish stocking level can have a positive impact to coral coloration and growth in some situations.

3 weeks later no changes in colors at all but PO4 dropped from 0.08 to 0.05. All three weeks keeping the no3 levels at 2-5 ppm.

I think I can say that corals grow well, yes. But some dramatically changed color and don't want to comeback. I'm just a little bit confused. Using mostly full line of Zeovit with all the right parameters and lighting and can't say that getting super amazing result. People with just chaeto and skimmer getting better colors hehehe ....

Have you already tried some bigger water changes ?

How long have you kept the corals in the before and after shots in your system ?

No, I do only 10% every week. I never do large water changes, I'm not sure why I need it, to like reset the system? My params are stable and got up only at the end of the fight with dino, when it was dying.

First 4 months when I've started the system everything was perfect. Super nice colors and very good growth. Then got dinos, was fighting with dinos for about 2 months and this is where the shift was. Now for the last two months, the grow is not so good, but still here. And colors are not so good on some acros, not all of them! Some are pretty cool and it is not related to one or two specific colors. The color loss I think was just after the dino is gone, so for about 2 months from now. The system is 8 months old.

The water change does add consumed elements and does remove accumulated elements in a balanced way. If there is any kind of element imbalance this can really increase growth and color effective.

Have you used any kind of chemicals to get rid of the dinos ?

The only one thing I was using is Vibrant Liquid Aquarium Cleaner and I still dose it twice a week. So do you think I need to perform a 50% water change?

In the last week I've lost 5 different acros, just quick TN and died. So it loks like only the old corals ( who survived the dino fight and elevated nutrients levels from dino die off ) are showing signs of stress now. Because I've added four new large colonies and they are super happy and with no signs of stress.

If the recently added corals are doing fine basically everything should be OK again. If corals do have some kind of damage from a event in the past it can take a lot of time until they start to recover and grow healthy again. From my experience only time and stability can fix this otherwise there is not much you can do.
