Can you tell which kind of carbon you use also the quantity and if you use it active or passively flown ? Have you already tried 2 or 3 water changes each 15% within 10 days to refresh consumed elements in a balanced way ?

380 mg potassium is the same level as natural seawater, there is not need to increase it to 400 mg if your test kit result is accurate.

To darken the corals a little bit you can try to dose 1 ml / 25 US gallons 2 x weekly and 1 drop AminoAcid / 25 US gallons 1 x weekly.

This should usually darken the tissue and color a little bit.

I got a new potassium test today, it shows that potassium is 470. so the old test has been shown incorrect. Is it harmful with so high potassium? Should I take a water change? The corals have a light tissue because of little nutrition. 0 nitrate and 0 phosphate.

It will decrease over the time, just keep it around 380 mg.

I noticed today that zeobac smelled rotten, that's not normal? can it be bad? best before 10/2020. It has always been stored in a refrigerator. Maybe this is why I got cloudy water?

6 drops daily for some time does not cause issues. You can additional mix it with 6 ml CoralSnow for a treatment
