a little thought

1. The parameters look good. For personal taste, Kh is a bit high. If you can reconfirm the salinity and the value of the huge elements, I have no experience with the salt mixture you used. I just want to make sure that all the data is correct again.

2.What is the amount of ZeoVit material and how it is used, whether it passes through the reactor

3. What is the activated carbon brand and what kind of use, passive flight or active flight

4. What K+ level, get the potassium test kit and get the reading

5. [No live rock] and [tank 4 months], Tank is still very young, biology seems to need more time

Thank you, the information/message you gave does not seem to deviate too much from the track, ZeoVit material and traffic it applies to 400L

Is it a single MONTIPORA BLEACHING affected? So are other corals healthy and growing?

Can you tell if the other corals are doing fine and if they are growing showing healthy polyp expansion ? Also can you please post a picture of such a Montipora coral ?

At this point, I don't have a better idea, just think that tank biology seems to be very young.

What is your water exchange period and %

Have you already checked if the Montipora is infected with this kind of snails ?

If just one Montipora coral is affected and all other corals are doing fine I would not expect a general problem. Lets try to do three water changes each 15% within the next 10 days to refresh elements in a balanced way.

A ICP water test once might also be a good idea to rule out any issue with your test kits or any other “problem”.
