I don't know if you use ZeoVit material / reactor hourly flow rate, is it correct?

I don't know what brand of activated carbon you use, and what is the way to use it.

Signs of pale corals, are most corals showing such signs? What kind of coral are they?
(Don't know if there is a Montipora coral in the tank? How does it look, pale/grey appearance?)

Does the coral have good PE?

PO4 = 0.03 ppm, usually the tissue of the coral is healthy. Then it may be part of the "external force", such as: ZeoVit / activated carbon, or insufficient elements, such as: potassium. How often do you change the water?

If there is only "zoas" (if I understand it is correct), then I am very sorry that I have no good experience. Maybe it's Led, maybe it's the indirect possibilities described above. Or if the nutritional level is stable, it may be good to try LPS AA. But my understanding is - most of the Zoas corals, enough light should be enough

Another extra idea is -tank using live rock?

How many fish are in the tank. How often do you water change.
You might need more food or more fish in the system unless your tank is on the verge of meltdown from no water changes.
What state are the corals in now other then pale colors (polyp extension, growth)
