Default What supplements should I use (non-zeofit system)

I have a 90 gallon frag system that is ULN despite a large fish load and heavy feedings. I attribute this to a very powerful refugium and marinepure block. I am not running any other forms of nutrient export. Not even trimming the refugium macro.

My nutrients are <0.25ppm no3 (no pink at all with red sea test) and 0ppm phosphorous hanah ulr phosphorous.

I feel like my SPS could benefit from some of the supplements that zeovit offers to make sure they are getting everything they need. I am currently using aquavitro fuel three times a week, but I feel like the KZ product are of higher quality most likely.

Where should I start?

I would say coral system, CV, CB and Flatworm stop. but be careful these elements are potent and build for UNLS so if you have high PO4/NO3 you should not dose CV and CB.

I would say that it depends on how you corals look at the moment.
Can you describe them, and the best thing you can do - post pictures.
It's hard to advise anything when you don't see the tank.

Several of my acros are quite faded while some look great. I have ordered some pohls Xtra special and amino acid concentrate.

Do all your corals are growing well ?

You have mention that several look faded while others do not.

Can you try to explain which ones are doing fine and which ones are not ?

Maybe some pictures would be helpful also.

Here are a couple examples. ORA joe the coral used to be a rich blue color. The bonsia acro used to be purple but is looking more like a tricolor now. Also the myagi torts used to be darker purple.

Thank you for the pictures, basically it can also be a lighting spectrum issue, difficult to say over the distance. Purple coloration is difficult to keep in nutrient poor systems so you can try to dose some iron which can help but you will never get this color as intensive as in a system with higher nutrients.

Blue can be a result of a low K+ level, it the level is ~ 380 mg already a iodine supplement might be helpful.

Thanks! I keep K as close to 400 as I can with dosing. I'll think about iodine.

For now I think I will give the Pohl's xtra special a try and do a triton test to make sure nothing is too off. I THINK my levels should be relatively good considering I do 1.5% automatic water changes every day, but this tank is a frag system which is basically 100% full of color so it could be pulling stuff out of the water column more than I think. Might not be a bad idea to switch to a salt with elevated levels so that the 1.5% is actually contributing more.
