Icp is delivered on Monday not sure how long it takes once its there but Im guessing we will find out more next week.

I did some reading on your suspected ID and I will say treatment plan still stand at least for now.
If indeed that's what you dealing with, nutrient control is key since the Id is algae.
Usually my approaches is to try treating without medication first, but this is because I try to preserve existing system and coral.
In your case things are less stringent since your system is so light and young.
Let's do the 48h dark.
Then we follow the plan described which will reset your system and aggressively treat algae.
Then we can adjust based on the outcome

Ok so a few updates.

1. the 48 hours black out really made a difference and cut back the algae significantly. Now a few days later it is coming back but it seems more slowly. I am suspecting as I get zeo more stabilized doing this process again could help finish it off.

2. I got my triton test back. the concerning looking one to me was Ba. The only ones that are off are Ba, I, Li

Let me know if I need to do anything to address these.

I have followed the plan you setup. Changed stones started dosing zeostart and zeobac 6 days ago. Nothing else except a water change before blackout and another water change after blackout.

Very good. Nothing too bad in your icp. We will work on the ba and li slowly.
Let's establish the zeo system first.
Clean sand and substrate every water change
Remember zb should be doser for 10 continues days then switch to 3 times a week
Dose zf 1 time a week, choose a day that u does it with zb
The rest follow the plan.
Report po4 no3 system health 2 3 times a week.

Thanks

Just a verification... Is it still a good idea to dose zf knowing now that I have an algae type of issue? I know I have po4 and no3 even if they arent showing on the test I just dont want to see it explode? Maybe dosing zf is the only way to find the balance I am just curious your thought for doing that

Your po4 no3 are very low. One time a week zf is not bad and will help feed your bacteria to speed up the zeo system. We cut once we see more algae. For now reduce ur light period, feed little, houskeeping, vacuum and cleaning every water change...
