Sorry, you have already answered me in #1.
Ocean reef crystal sea salt, I have no experience in using it, I don't know enough about the product. I searched a little. I found a paragraph

"Immediate marine coral reef crystal designed for coral reef aquarium Designed with extra calcium, selected trace elements and vitamins above natural seawater concentration. These additional measures reduce the need for constant replenishment and additives to supplement the basic substances that are rapidly consumed in the thriving coral reef aquarium. Reef crystals also contain Special additives that help detoxify excess heavy metals such as copper "

I don't know about the product.
Maybe try some better sea salt mixture is a better choice.

So what brand of sea salt mixture is used?
I use Red Sea's Coral Pro (alk 11) but changed to Aquarium System's Reef Crystal(alk 8) to slowly lower alkalinity.


What is the brand of ZeoVit material? I use KZ's zeovit.

Can you post some good pictures about sump?







Does coral grow? Are they consumed by Kh Ca elements? Is the coral polyp wrapped? Is PE extended?
Corals do show growth and consume alk, Ca, Mg. So I use a auto-doser to keep constant.
Most of the sps corals do look healthy with polyp extensions but just having hard time keeping inner colors.
Though after changing to zeovit LPS (gonio, torch, brain) seem to have gotten a little smaller with less extensions.

Thank you, I don't have much thought at the moment. If it is me, I will follow Zeo's recommended method.

I have 2 guesses at the moment, but I don't know if I can really help.

Slowly change the ocean pure block to some high quality live rock
I don't know if some hoses are leaching extra substances and cause coral color loss.

No, you've been so helpful already. Thank you.
I'll try limiting the dosing as recommended and exclude products I may not need.

It looks good, I think let us temporarily return to the base product 4, if you can, get the reactor. I think Zeo CV 4 drops and Xtra 2ml can be added twice a week. The rest of the product is temporarily stopped. Try to change the water 10% 3 times in 10 days to refresh the elements in a balanced way. The amount of ZeoVit material and the amount of Zeo activated carbon/how to use it is true. And stable water quality parameters include potassium. A malnourished environment, so the performance of corals is no problem. I can't give you good experience and advice on lighting. Listen to the advice of G.

Another idea is, in the sump, those materials, why do you need a led lighting?

I've been adding 2drops of CV but stopped Xtra. I'll start Xtra again and try to reduce or stop the rest.
The light in the sump isn't for anything much than for me to see better I had one laying around and just put it on. I turn it on only when I'm dosing

Thank you, I understand what you mean. I am really sorry that I don't have the experience of pure ocean blocks. I feel that the slow replacement of some quality live rock may be good, and the PO4 should not rise in a little bit every week. This is just some of my thoughts, to see if other people have better suggestions.

Do you think the material in the sump will be a problem?
What do you think?

Please take a look at this thread:

Https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/is...4#post-3814988

I personally prefer fresh, lively rocks, not materials.

Thanks, I will keep that in mind.
I'll try to change to live rocks a little at a time.

Just a suggestion (I am not sure of the core of the problem). If you do "the filter slowly reduces the plan", you must pay attention to whether the nutritional level is rising. And add some quality live rock at "weekly" intervals, and the same level of attention should not be raised.

Let us first listen to the opinions of G.Alexander.

As often such issues can have many reasons so basically you need to rule out the problems step by step. I do see the additional filtration material you use as a possibility of the problem but if you decide to remove it do this slowly step by step. If all has been removed add a couple of pieces fresh good quality live rock instead but do this step by step also.

Another problem might be the lighting spectrum, I am not familiar with LED lighting so maybe someone else can help but basically the more the spectrum is like natural sunlight the better it is. For many this spectrum is to light so some more blue can be added to the spectrum but it should not be to much.

Another possibility is dosing temporary more water changes, 15 % three times within 10 days would be good. This might “balance” elements if there is any kind of element concentration to low or accumulated.
