If your corals are healthy and doing fine you can try to switch the reactor to continuous flow about one week after the first ZeoVit exchange. This should be helpful to reduce PO4 slowly over the time.

Also vacuum the sand while each water change for some time to remove the sediments from the deeper sand layers. Adjust your skimmer to skim more wet and clean it daily or every other day to export as much as possible. While doing this keep a eye on the K+ level.

Ok got it. Continuous flow through reactor 1 week after 1st media change.
I ll check potassium level today and keep you posted.
I will also do a 10% waterchange.
Should i try any other product for lowering phosphate?

I think, you just need to be careful not to lower the PO4 speed too fast, which will put pressure on the coral.

I am with Jacky, no additional products are necessary at this stage. Lets see if the level slowly starts to decrease within the next weeks.
