Can you please post some actual coral pictures and a list of the products you already have ? Also do the corals show good growth and polyp expansion and has the tissue already started to become lighter because of the decrease of nutrients ?

Hello.
I add some photos. Po4 0.01 No3 0.5 mg/l. My corals grow up and their colors change. I use zeostart 0.6 ml twice a day. Zeobak 6 drops twice a week. That's all. I make water changes : 10% weekly and I use 1.5 l of zeolit and kz activated carbon. I m very happy with this method even if I think the colors can be improved

Keep a eye on the Helimeda algae, they can really can become a pest so it is important to make sure they do not spread without control.

Hello Alexander. Thank you for your help. On these 2 pictures coral colors have changed in recent days. Surely because the lack of nutrients. What do you think I need to do to supplement animals?

As low-nutrient coral tissue should become lighter, you can first confirm the k+ level to 380. According to the guide cv aa xtra, increase coral growth and PE. You can start slowly from cv, usually 1 drop = 25 gallons twice a week. It is also possible to add xtra to help grow dark colors with excessive color corals, and by adjusting the appearance and color of the corals to adjust them at the right time, they usually take 2 days to react. Supplementary food cv xtra (containing a small amount of amino acids) focuses on p-values ​​Algae growth Organic salts This depends on the correspondence of the system and the basic combination of kz. In addition, the sponge power feeding sponge is very effective for water quality. Enhancing biology. Reducing the water quality burden. I personally found that the blue color of the coral seems to be enhanced. Since k and sp and PIF purple seem to be pretty good.

Only personal observation, reference, not correct

Hello Francois, I expect it is the same coral on both pictures. Was it a wild coral when you got it or does it came from another reef tank ?

Thanks for all...

Fresh imported wild corals do usually need more time to adopt to our system, this was the reason why I have asked also corals do look different if they come from a system with elevated nutrients, especially the color purple is difficult to keep in a nutrient poor system.

As it seems that all other corals showing good coloration it is not a general problem but it also can just be a issue with the lighting spectrum, the intensity of the light especially for this individual coral.
