I would recommend to decrease the salinity over a week or 10 days, if you do this to quick corals might respond with additional TN.

Check KH and Ca regular while doing this, both levels will come down also, same as potassium.

Just supplement KH, Ca and K+ with additives as necessary and ignore the PH, there is no need to supplement it usually.

Any thoughts what type of algae is in these pictures?
I mean those black algae’s looks like coralline:







No3=2
Po4 = 0.061 ppm
And the sand is still brown:

Can you remove the algae with a brush easy ?

Have not seen this kind of algae, does it start to spread ?

No its hard like purple coralline,
I dont know yet, Its funny but I aware of them just last night.
I should inspect them closely.

In normal light their color is very dark, like black.
But in flash light of camera they are very dark GREEN.

From older pictures of the tank, I can say they were very little spread two weeks ago

I would expect it is just some kind of coralline algae.

From my experience in reefing I have used multiple types of live rock but always in the dark in my new aquariums the rocks had some areas of green which later turned purple. You can get multiple colours of coraline algae.

Default A.li's zeovit thread

This coral starts to bleach from 24 hours ago, any possible reason?

Last test results :
PH : 8 in light 7.7 in dark
KH :7.3 or 7.2
Ca: 440
Mg: 1335
No3: 2.5
Phosphorus :16
Specific gravity: 1.026

I had a problem with high salinity and Ca & Mg levels, they are decreasing step by step.

Just can tell you that this kind of coral is sensitive to salinity (high / low / quick changes).
