You could use some Coral snow, that should clear the water.

But cloudy water can also be a bacterial bloom, you dose ZS3 once daily, it is recommended to dose twice.

How often do you dose Zbak?

The phenomenon you describe indicates that the bacteria are not cultivated, and the bacteria that blackizzz said are blooming. Increase pollution sources and bacteria to grow them or add live rock to help. (Nitrifying bacteria die, heterotrophs multiply, producing white fog seen by the eyes).

I don't understand the chemical formula, thank you for sharing it with me and learning. The most important thing is to cultivate the nitrifying bacteria first. It is more meaningful to have a strong and robust system and then add balance.

As long as the PO4 level is high I would not dose plankton or any other coral food. It is not necessary at this stage and will just increase nutrients.

Do you use the zeolite material from korallenzucht ?

@G.Alexander
Yup, original zeolites

So the goal here is to lower phosphates to 0.0X? yes i will not feed anything to see is they starts to drop...
Skimmer and wool export a lot of the dead brown algae/film

Additional try to adjust your skimmer to skim wet while daily cleaning it to export as much as possible.

It might also be helpful to decrease the PO4 slowly if you additional dose BioMate @ 1 drop daily for some time.

Please also recheck the zeovit reactor flow by measuring if the reactor flow is as recommended.

Thanks!

What is considered wet skimming? should i fill the cap daily (about 200ml)?
At present, this is how i set it for:

What is Biomate and why or how reduces phosphates?

If you increase the water level in the skimmer it will skim more wet. It is not a question of quantity the skimmate color is the indicator. If you skim wet the skimmate has a color like green tea.

BioMate is a Korallenzucht product:

It does have a positive effect to the PO4 level in most cases.
