Thank you for your pictures. Personally, I suggest you add some high-quality Live rock, which has positive positive improvement on current status, coral growth, tank, system and biology. After adding the Live rock, replace the old tube and gradually increase the lighting time. During the period, the water quality was basically measured and stabilized.

With the above conditions, we can get more extension adjustments.

It's best to gradually add extra live rock in a few weeks, so it won't be too much. You can choose to put it in the sump without additional processing.

Recommended water quality parameters,
KH 6.5 - 7.5
Ca 400 - 420 mg
Mg 1250 - 1300 mg
K + ~380 mg

For malnourished environments, K + (potassium) seems to be an important factor. I suggest you also get a test kit for this element and post your results.

Replace the first Zeo zeolite, 50%, 10 days after each Zeo zeolite is exchanged daily for ZeoBac. If the coral is healthy, switch to continuous flow after about 2 weeks.

In fact, corals seem to have no problems, some organizations are light, some are dark, I just want to make tank biology more fulfilling, during which NP should not rise, continue your dosing and maintenance, with zeolite replacement, lamp replacement

*Some Live Rocks don't need much

Potassium boost, please be sure to proceed slowly

What is your nutritional feeding supplement?

Have you had those issues with light corals before starting ZeoVit also ?

Because of the light tissue, can you please measure the ZeoVit reactor flow by collecting the water from the reactor outlet for 30 seconds with a small container, than multiply the volume by 120 and you will get the exact output per hour.

Also which kind of carbon do you use and do you have the carbon in a reactor ?

Thanks G for your advice!
I just measured the zeovit reactor flow .about 170L/H.the active carbon i used is the redsea carbon with passive flow.
i also changed the T5 bulbs.one kz superblue,one kz white.and increased the photoperiod 30 minutes every two days until the full time up to 10 hours a day.
another question is do i need to add some live rocks into the tank?if so how many need?thanks again!

The flow is to low but at the moment this is not a issue so lets keep it as it is.

I would try to remove the carbon completely for some time. After removing it do two or three water changes each ~ 15% within 10 days to refresh elements in a balanced way. I have no experience with the carbon you use but it can be to aggressive in removing elements. This is the first thing I would try to rule out.

Have you already tested your RO water for PO4 and NO3 ?

Your dosing regimen is fine, the brown film might be a result of the elevated nutrients and should disappear within the next days.

I was just curios as nutrients should not increase after a water change, both NO3 and PO4 should come down slowly again within the next couple of days.
