I have done this in the morning while the lights where off and corals had the maximum polyp expansion. The biofilm scrubbed off the rocks is a excellent food source for them.

While changing the zeolites. Every 6/8 weeks. Do we have to change the whole 100% or have to keep 10% of previous & 90% new ?

For the very first change, I have kept 50% of the old Zeolites, mixed with 50% new Zeolites, 4 weeks after initial setup. Then, 6 weeks after that exchange (now the 2nd exchange), mixed 10% old Zeolites, 90% new Zeolites and kept the 10/90 ratio thereafter. I've never changed 100% of the Zeolites.

Make sure to dose ZEObak daily for 10 days after changing out the Zeolites.

What vfp has said is correct, always keep ~ 10% of the old material in the reactor and add ~ 90% fresh material. This does speed up the process to colonize the new material with bacteria.

Default 5 feet SPS tank

Update on test results
Salifert test kit:

Nitrate is still at 50ppm
Phosphate is 0

Its 7th day of the 14day cycle.
I have seen good improvement in coloration of corals but why the nitrates havent come down at all?

Just keep the path, dose Zeobac, Sponge Power and ZeoStart as follows:

ZeoBac 4 drops 3 x weekly
ZeoStart – 0.4 ml 2 x daily
SpongePower – 4 drops every other day

At the moment I recommend to stay with the basics, later on you can dose additional products depending to the look of the corals. Here is a compact overview of the products:

Is this still your dosing regimen to do you dose anything else ?

ZeoBac 4 drops 3 x weekly
ZeoStart – 0.4 ml 2 x daily
SpongePower – 4 drops every other day
