Good point Blackizzz
I tested it at the LFS, they used a Salifert kit and yes, it showed 390mg.
I will try to get a new Potassium test (for me) to test K more often.

Today I started dosing Acropower AA, let's see what happens on the following days.

Could K be depleted by using GFO, heavy skimming or heavy Scrubbing?

I have seen a quick decrease of K+ in systems running overrated needle wheel skimmers in the past, a common reason. Try to cross check the K+ level with a different test kit, in the meantime some bigger water changes would be helpful to refresh elements in a balanced way. You have also changed to a different carbon brand, can also be the reason for the light tissue.

Ok, after 5 days of heavy feeding I started to see a light change on the color of Monti Cap..it seems to be turning pink (it was almost white).

I started dosing Acropower + AF Vitamins 3 days a week mixed with Reef Roids, CoralFrenzy and ReefBooster (Prodibio).
The good thing: NO3 and PO4 did not moved at all, still 2.5ppm NO3 and undetectable PO4.

I will wait some weeks and will post an update.

Thank you guys for the help.
