I can not see it clear in the pictures as I can not read the levels because of the pictures size but the Al level seems to be high. Any idea where this is coming from ?

Al lithium, bronium, phosphorus, and phosphate are sky hi. I have no idea where the Al is coming from. I will have to check each individual component for any rusting or breaks.

Well in the past month I have reduced zeolites to .4L and dose zeostart maybe 3 times a week at .4ml. I have since done 3 50% water changes and added GFO, dose 8ml of no3pox4 daily, 8ml of red sea ABCD a week. My no3 is now stable and down to 2-4 range, my po4 is stable at .08ppm. Corals look amazing except for two, but most of the LPS does not have the bleach spotting anymore. SPS all have great growth and still recovering the bright blues.
In the past 3 years, cycling with dry rock and sand, zeovit right from the start, I have always struggled to get the no3 lower than 18ppm and lower po4. I'm not sure why my system acts differently but I will be removing the zeolites here in about another month. I really wish we could have figured out what my issues were, but it was a good learning curve. I may come back in the future, but for now I will try other routes. Feel free to ask me any questions.

just be careful when you use GFO,
1- you do not want to drop PO4 quickly or drop it to zero, you will trigger cyano once NO3/PO4 is not balanced.
2- you do not want to use GFO that leach back PO4 once saturated or and iron based GFO that will leach AL..
I like to use rowphos but rarely to treat PO4 if I have spikes for any reason, never long term usage though.

I started off my running gfo only 4 hours a day for one week. The week after I ran for 12hrs a day. For the last few weeks everything is stable.
I'll exchange every month or when I notice my po4 rise.
