so 6ml 2x per week but start with 1/2 dose (160 gal water volume).
What does coral quantity adjustment mean?

Thanks

Sorry, that means the number of corals. Mainly due to the appearance of corals, the closer the water quality is to the performance of ULNS corals, the more obvious my observation experience is. After 2 hours, the color of the top tissue of the coral deepened. Sometimes the next day. Not necessarily. Sometimes I feel that there is no change. (Look at your personal experience)

1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 1/5, there is no certain formula. Probably the adaptation of corals to changes in the impact of the system. Slowly add up in half the amount. The nutrition of water quality is more obvious as it is closer to ULNS.

Thank you

okay, no problem. Make sure to add well after skimmer.
You don't need to turn off the skimmer, you don't need to turn off the lights, the lights are on and off, you can add them at any time.

Off-topic - If you don't have algae problems and corals grow, coral tissue is not dark, and NP levels are good, then supplementing Xtra makes sense.
In addition, before supplementing Xtra, let us get the potassium test kit, K+~380 mg.

Potassium is at 400 currently with no algea problems at all and corals are growing and looking good as in good growth, pleasing colors etc.

So 3 days after water and zeolite media change :

Ph 8.2
Nitrite 0.05
Am 0
Nitrate 0
Mg 1440
Alk 3
Cal 470
Pot 440
Phos 0.04

Been dosing as directed have a tad bit of brown algea on bottom
Should I be dosing more biomate? (2x weekly as instructed)
Corals are all growing and have fantastic color so maybe Im good?

Any advice ?
Thank you

It looks good,Alk 3 should be a typo,K+~380-400 mg.
the data is only slightly higher, the low NP water quality and the Zeovit system are not recommended for high data. What advice do you want, can you refer to the picture with white light?

As all basic water parameters are elevated I would recommend to cross check salinity with a different accurate instrument as precaution to make sure it is not to high.

If the SG is indeed at 1.024, then the water parameters are quite high and try to slow down. (Be sure to know the correct SG, otherwise another data rises or falls). Alk 6.1 does not pose an immediate hazard to corals. Alk 6.5~7.5 is recommended.

Slowly adjust to avoid the corals feeling the pressure, or refresh the balance with a small amount of water change

*Salifert Ca test package, it seems to be revised, the use of potion doses seems to be different, please note. (new version)

Any suggestions to lower current water parameters?
Cut back on certain doses? Feed less (fish)?
I currently change out 20 gallons weekly (160 gal tank volume), dose as directed from G.alexander. I use fritz pro salt and have a great RO / DI system (tds is 0).
The only thing I have altered were adding POHL’S XTRA and Kaliumiodid-Fluor, both 2x weekly.
Thank you
