Do you have the opportunity to start with a suitable level of salinity to confirm that it is good and stable, maybe the test method is wrong, or buy a new test package cross comparison

I have some additional questions:

How much and how often have you dosed K-Balance ? Do you use K-Balance Strong or the Standard version ?

Which kind of HQI bulbs do you use and how old are they and how old are the T5 bulbs ?

Which kind of test do you use for PO4 ?

Are the corals growing ?

I use refractometer ATC. It's calibrated with Salifert refracto cheсk and I have areometer tropic marine. Water level in my tank is constant because I use ghl sensor auto top off.

Standart version, 4ml/day, automatically.
Power chrome 2*250W (1year old) + 4T5
Hanna ppm and ppb. Now I have 5ppb.
Yes.
Not all, but corals growing.

Looks very good

The HQI bulb is used for one year. It is recommended that you replace it with a new one. It should be old, the spectrum is shifted, not the spectrum required by the coral. Then the T5 lamp is replaced with a new one.

So what is the potassium value? If the value is correct and below 380 mg, the slow increase is good, for example: your method of administration 4ml / day, do x4 times, interval 2hr

4ml / day, do x4 times, interval 2hr, record the current potassium value, such as 340 mg

Increase to 5ml / day, do x4 times, interval 2hr, measure potassium value, for example: 350 mg (level rises),( The time of day increased by 10 mg, which is not too much)

Again, 6ml / day, do x4 times, interval 2hr, measure potassium

And so on

This is safe at a dose of 1 ml, and of course it is possible to fall below or with a balanced or insufficient curve.

Or measure the potassium value by x2, for example, 4ml to 8ml, 8ml / day, do x4 times, interval 2hr

Keep changing water 5~10% per week to improve the growth of corals

I measured Strontium in my aqua with Salifert. That's a new test kit. It showed me 0. I started dosing Brightwell Strontium 1cap/day. Now I can't change my bulbs..

I think that by changing the water every week, it should be enough for the trace element Sr.

Huge element, Kh Ca Mg k+, are they stable?

First find the reason, let the coral grow, the coral growth elements will be consumed, what do you think?

A well-balanced salt mixture that seems to help/stimulate, coral growth, no matter what, 5~10% change by weekly water is good

I don't have any experience in supplementing Sr at present, of course, I believe it should be possible with the test agent.

On the replacement of the light bulb, what kind of trouble you have encountered, maybe I can help with some busy (my experience is not very rich)

Hello Zuboov

Can I post a picture of the current coral appearance?

With malnourished water quality, we can judge from coral tissue, tissue becomes lighter, better PE, polyp growth

The products you list are usually well added to malnourished water quality.

I am with Jacky, pictures would be helpful however the bulbs are to old already which makes it difficult to improve coloration even if nutrient are low already.
