i think i found the problem

my ro water was bad i've tested for nitrate and was full of it 5+

so when i used red sea high range test and was trying dilute with ro water it tested false

my numbers now

no3 3-4
po4 0,23

which is a good ratio

i did introduced some phosphate in the morning to fight nitrate
and i did nottice 50% reduction (not sire if thats actually possible ) but i did test 3 times today and it gradually got lower to this number

so hopefully it pulling the nitrate too

i did introduced nopox 2x 10 ml today which is a lot to me

i keep pellet 1/2 of my normal dose - no change

i've dosed
4d/biomate
8d/zeofood
2,5 ml/ zeostart
2 times today
as a mixture with salt water straight to the reactor pump

i wasn't sure if i should cut on eostart as apparently contain nitrate but i kept it

i did removed mech filtration

i did cleaned deeply skimmer + adjust

it is a bit aggressive but in the morning i thought situation is much worse than it was. not that is ok as my corals not doing good.

i will cut on dosage over 3-4 days

hope that all make sense

Good to hear you have found the reason for the elevated NO3 level.

Otherwise I would recommend to follow the recommendation in the end of the test result sheet:

Quote:
Salinity is too low. Reduce KH and calcium dosage. Nickel is elevated, find source (corroding metals/magnets, RO water, salt). Results from RO water will follow tomorrow.
If you increase the salinity which should be done every slow please keep in mind that all other parameters will increase also.
