Personally I would dose phosphate you corals look washed out. I would dose just one drop a day of phosphorus

Thank you for suggesting, what is the intention of adding phosphoric acid? Although the instrument measures 0 ppm of phosphoric acid, fish, feeding, live rock, amino acids... the system reaches a certain equilibrium, the phosphoric acid data is 0~0.01, I believe that phosphoric acid is not really 0ppm, it is close to 0ppm, Nature Ocean, I also follow the KZ system's recommendations

What are you using to test phosphate?
Henna goes down to 0.003 all reefs have at least 0.005 phosphate even at the crest top level corals have at least that much.

Do not you think your skimmer is bigger than you need for your system? This might be the issue, you are extracting too much nutrients.
Also before you start dosing stuff I would recommend you first try addressing it through the zeo system. This is the healthiest way instead of dosing stuff that can cause issues down the road.
To increase po4 s but I would dial back the reactor flow a bit, reduce zs a bit (do not reduce less than half the recommended dose)
Decreasing reactor flow will raise nutrient a bit.
Reducing zs will decrease po4.
Also your nutrient supplements are bit low for your volume.
So you have oversized skimmer, low nutrient supplements that might be why your coral is washed out..

Effective and Powerful Protein Separator (Isolation Dross)
7. Adequate light
8. High-quality additional nutrients
9. Additional ingredients at low levels
10. The most suitable water quality (Ca, Mg, KH, Salinity)
11. Change water regularly every week
The goal to achieve
The purpose of using this system is to create a low nutrient environment, mainly to reduce nitrate (NO3) and phosphate (PO4) without reducing other important minerals such as calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg) and Calcium carbonate (KH)

Image from top to bottom Test phosphate. Do you think I want to increase the output or input of po4, thank you for your comments

Zeo nutrient supplement are
Aa,bb,cv,zf,cb.
Your dosages seema low for your volume. As an exampme: CV dosage is 1 drop per 25g.
Same with zf, aa.
You can go aa up to daily if your po4 no3 are low.
Also your system will benefit from xtra and xtra special. Take a look at the latest guidelines, xtra and xtra special are direct impact on coral if they are washed out.
I would recommend the following
Dose
zf 2 times a week
Aa every other day
Bb 3 times a week
Xtra per the labor recommendation.
Keep an eye on your po4 no3, as long as they are low(not zero, do not drop to zero) your coral will improve.
Finally am still concerned that your skimmer is way oversized. Bubble king are very conservative and advice to follow their recommendations not like other skimmers where you can over size. Further kore they advice that your consider only your display tank water volume when you choose a size with bubble king. Which means you are way oversized. Skimmer will pull too much nutrients from the water.

I do also think the skimmer is much overrated which can cause issues however from the pictures I can not see much of a issue at the moment.

Can you please try to describe exactly what the actual problem is ?

Please also measure the flow of your ZeoVit reactor, should not be higher than 160 US gallons per hour.

Do you run the carbon in a reactor ?

The lighting spectrum is also very blue, for my taste, having am more balanced spectrum would be better, replacing 2 or 3 of the blue bulbs with white bulbs.
