if you do not see any cyano, lets cut back on CC to once a week only s a preventive measure. but if you still see some cyano keep the same.
please list your current dosing to remind me where you are and recommend adjustment when needed.
make sure you describe your coral and over all health of your system.

By CC do you mean Coral Snow and Cyano drops?

Zeobak = 4 Drops daily for now
Sponge Power = 4 drops every other day
Kent Tech CB Part A = 8 ml daily (divided by 12 and spread throughout the day)
Kent Tech CB Part B = 8 ml daily (divided by 12 and spread throughout the day offset by 30 minutes to Part A)
Magnesium = off
Zeostart 3 = .8 ml (divided by 4 and spread throughout the day)
Pohl's Extra = 4 ml (1 times a day Monday and Thursday only)

Everything is looking good so far. Will post some pictures.

Today I am doing the 1 teaspoon zeozym and 4 drops of bio mate.

Processes:
4 hours with lid. Added bio mate after 4 hours and mixed with lid (used measuring teaspoon and will use the spoon in the container next time. Do this 3 times per week). Waited another 4 hours. Lights off and skimmer for off for 2 hours.

February 17, 2018 - Saturday

Before weekly water change.
I did the zeozym and biomate solution last night.

Alk = 7.0 dosing 8ml
Calc = 440 dosing 8ml
Mag = 1380 dosing off
Salifert Nitrates = 0 with a slight pink tint
Red Sea Nitrates = 2
Salifert PO4 ppm = O
Hanna phosphorus ULR ppb
Test 1 = 133 ppb
Test 2 = 0 ppb
Test 3 = 51 ppb

Hate Hanna tester.... even used new reagent and cleaned and dried bottles with ro water and microfiber towel inside and out between each test.

Noticed green algae seems to be growing. Not hair algae yet.

Water change planned for tomorrow

if your PO4 reading is accurate (I tend to believe Sailefrt more than hanna), your parameters are spot on and in good shape.
looking at your pictures the above statement is correct.
you have good colors (look at your acros and stylo) and polyp extension. no Cyano or Diatom.
now, "if" we believe that you have zero PO4, I would say we need to go to normal UNLS mode for now.
dose ZS daily as recommended
dose ZB 3 times a week
dose SP 3 times a week
dose ZZ+BM 2 times a week
dose Cyano Clean+Coral Snow 1 time a week (you increase if you start seeing cyano)
dose ZF 1 time a week. use a day that you dose ZB and dose them separately but at the same time in your sump.

thus far you do not have a lot of SPS so you should not expect high CA/ALk demand, once you start adding more SPS you will have more CA and ALK intake so you need to adjust your dosing.
for now I would say my work with you is done as your tank seems stable and in good shape, keep your parameters within the recommended ranges
test PO4/NO3 weekly
test ALK daily
test CA weekly
do not add a lot of nutrients in your tank so watch your feeding
10-20% weekly water change, if you feel you are stable enough you can do bi weekly 20%
would be good to do one Triton test to base line your self.

good luck.

oh one more thing, when you see algae (green or brown) you need to reduce some of the nutrient in your tank that's why we reduce SP and Cyano Clean, except when you have Cyano we increase cyano clean. just keep an eye on the algae you described and lets see if it progressed or end up disappearing. it is important to ID the algae before we can propose a cure to it...

Got the picture? Since u r getting in to zeo system, Itsimportant you get familiar with products names and know what is the additive described before you dose to male sure u do jot dose the wrong one. I know it can get confusing some times but u will get the hang of it.

I keep the zeobak in the refrigerator as required. Even unopened ones. However how do you know when it is not good anymore? Also for the Bio mate one? Thank you

Both usually start to build up slime in the bottles when they have gone bad.

I have also seen this within the liquid, but it does not happen very often.
