Default My tank spec

Really think the nitrate issue is restricting colouration,and pe on some frags,also I use redsea blue bucket salt with 25ltr weekly water change,as this is not synthetic salt I wonder if the mix is not identical every time which may be causing issues,was looking at a changing salt to synthetic but then it means a slow gradual change which would set me back months again

Do you run any kind of mechanical filtration material ?

2 mg NO3 is really not a issue and it does not have a negative impact to your corals or to the coloration. You can try to decrease ZeoStart for some time to lets say 2/3 but keep a close eye on the PO4 level while doing this, it should not increase.

You can additional try to vacuum your sand regular while doing the weekly water change for some time to remove the mulm of the deeper sand layers.

Filter sponges are a common source for NO3 that is why I have asked. If the filter socks are cleaned regular it will be fine.

You can try to play around with ZeoStart a little bit, also dosing ZeoBac every other day for 14 days can be helpful but s mention the level of 2 mg does not have a negative impact, I am sure it will come down over the time.

Please also check the flow through your reactor if it is to low and cross check your No3 test kit to make sure it is accurate.
