I would deal with the algae first and then dose. Where is the gha in the tank? Is it just on the rocks or the back wall.
In any case I'd get rid of it either by pulling the rocks out and spraying them down with 3% peroxide and then start up dosing or using vibrant to kill it off/ Once you start back at it, it is liklely that the GHA will take off and cover everything in its path so I 'd get rid of it

Its only on the back wall and stays there. Rocks are fine other then a couple small patches on the rock located in the back corner near the wall. Would not be easy pulling that rock out without moving everything. It would really wreck the tank just to get to a small area on a rock. Maybe scrapping the wall while sucking the water to remove it is best. I just feel like it will come back without solving the root cause

Regular removing them manually in conjunction to adding a couple of herbivore should fix it soon. Those are different kind of algae also some higher algae which can do well even if the system is nutrient poor.

If all works well and if your corals are doing fine continue dosing as follows:

ZeoBac 3 drops 2 2 x weekly
ZeoStart 2 x 0.25 ml 2 x daily

If the first 4 weeks have passed replace 90% of the ZeoVit material. After the exchange dose ZeoBac daily again for 10 days, than 2 x weekly.

Replace the carbon about one week after the first ZeoVit exchange.

After every exchange of the zeolites are you supposed to dose daily for 10 days?

Exactly, ZeoBac daily for 10 days after each ZeoVit exchange.

I tested phostphate a few days ago and was .24 (hanna checker). I used coral snow+ after this test to help bring the levels down. To the CoralSnowPlus I also added zeobac, sponge power, coral vitalizer and b balance, I mixed this together and added to the tank. The next day 3 sps frags on the rack where white and a larger sps on a rock was melting from the bottom up. The next morning this piece was totally gone. Strange thing is 3 other smaller sps on the rocks next to the dead piece are all fine. I have no idea what happened but this evening I checked phosphates again and they are .28! Nitrates are around 2-5, I have a hard time using salifert tests

I do not have experience with CoralSnow Plus but basically it should not cause those drastic issues. The quantity of the other products is also fine for the system volume.

Have you done any other changes over the last week or replaced the ZeoVit material or the carbon ?
