First start with the basics products to decrease nutrients:

1. Place 0.75 liter zeovit in a Zeo Reactor. Water flow around 300 liters per hour. Connect the reactor pump to a clock timer and run the reactor pump with a 3 hour on / 3 hour off / 3 hour on interval. Please make sure the zeolite is not exposed to air while the pump is switched off. Clean the material daily. Leave the zeolite 4 weeks in the filter until you do the first change out. This is the first changing interval, others could be lengthen to 6 – 8 weeks.

2. Place 0.3 liters activated carbon in a filter sock and keep it in a passive water flow in your sump, changed every 30 days. Knead the carbon daily to keep the surface clean. Most users get perfect results with korallenzucht carbon.

3. Dose 3 drops ZeoBac daily for the first 2 weeks, flowed by a 2 – 3 x weekly dosage of 3 drops. Dose 0.3 ml ZeoStart 2 x daily (morning & evening). Dose those in front of the Zeo reactor pump while it is switched on.

Later on you could use the additional products for coral coloration. Adjust your skimmer to skim wet, keeping it clean to export as much as possible. Do a weekly water change of 5 – 10 % with a good salt.

Basic water parameters looking good, try to keep them as stabile as possible close the NSW in the following ranges:

KH 6.5 – 7.5
Ca 400 – 420 mg
Mg 1250 – 1300 mg
K+ ~ 380 mg

For a nutrient poor environment K+ (potassium) seems to be a important element. I would recommend you to get a test kit for this element also, posting your results.

If you use additional trace elements for your KH / Ca / Mg supplements I recommend to stop adding them, just dosing KH / Ca and if really necessary Mg but the level of Mg is already relative high in your system.

This is a start-up dosage which might have to be adjusted later.

Can you tell my what have you used to keep PO4 under control until now ?

Usually the on/off interval is helpful for the transition and I recommend to use it until 2 weeks after the first ZeoVit exchange, than you can switch to continuous flow if all corals are doing fine.

Just ignore it and vacuum the sand from time to time while doing water change. I do not expect it is something which does cause issues but I can not tell you what exactly it is.

No maybe just some sediment from the deeper layers which is brought up by any kind of worm for example but I do not know.
