Additional coral food is usually not necessary, basically it will just add nutrients which can in extreme low nutrient systems create a positive impact to the corals.

Have you already checked the K+ level of your system ?

You can additional try to dose 1.5 ml XTra daily for one week.

Default Cyle A Zeovit Tank

Thank you so much for ur help Alex,
I almost forgot the potassium level cause i have the tab in the reactor which i thought may have kept the potassium level up to par.
I just see ur reply and jump right into testing, it turns out its very low at 340. Whats the recommend dose to bring back up potassium quickly?
Also for CV, AA and Xtra special ,
what is the perfect time do dose? i hear that best time to dose is after light goes out in the evening or before light kicks off in the morning?

The low potassium level might be the cause of the light tissue, try to slowly increase it to ~ 380 mg.

Lets keep the dosing regimen as it is at the moment.

Can u believe it Alex?in just 10 days i slowly increase K+ to 380, i already see the color pop significantly, the tissue is thicker smoother. I believe it will even get better in week.
Thanks Alex, i almost forgot the K+. Should i dose K+ daily to keep it consistent at 380? If so, how much?

Good to hear, potassium is a very important element if a system runs nutrient poor stabile. Hard to say how much you need to dose but I would recommend to dose regular. You need to find the correct dosage for your system size to keep the level around 380 mg.
