Yes polyp expansion on corals is good.

Pohls xtra is good, it'll make the corals a little "fuller" in the colors. It's great to use if corals are a little pale. I use it daily. (just make sure it's xtra, and not "xtra special" as that's another product)

Acro glow I haven't used, but it's my understanding that it's some sort of macro-element-supply. If you do get it, let me know how it goes

Please post a update of the actual PO4 and NO3 level.

Have both already started to decrease slowly ?

Just tested

Phosphates still not come down and nitrates was zero which has increase 0.5 .

Nitrates coming up is not necessarily a bad sign! Some nitrates are needed for Phosphates to drop

If the coral is healthy, switch the reactor to a continuous flow of approximately 370 liters per hour. At the same time, vacuum the sand and change the water for a period of time to remove the sediment from the deep sand layer and adjust your skimmer to make it moister every day or every other day. The tank is about a month old and needs a little patience. It's hard to say that it varies with the environment.

Zeo bac 4 drops 3 times a week,
Start3 0.4ml morning/night,
SP 4 drops per day,
carbon daily to keep the surface clean.

True blackizzz. Not worried about nitrates. Its just phosphates not coming down. I think they need more time to come down
Yes jacky the system is barely a month old now. I ll change the zeolites on 1st week of Nov. and after 10 days of 3hrs on/off and i change it to run 24x7.
I will do waterchange on sunday and vacuum the sand bed also. Skimmer is also running wet.
There are no signs of cyano now.
But i can definitely say the corals colors have lighten. The pink birdsnest i have was also dark reddish color and its now pink lightened for sure.

@ I can say with certainty that the color of the coral has faded,
pay attention to the K+ level.

@Alkane dropped to 7 dkh. I think I will take it to 7.5 dkh.
Calcium high 450
The potassium content is low because you say 350ppm. It will slowly increase it to 400 in a few weeks.

Let them be at the level of data you maintain and be stable. Weekly monitoring I think too little, 3 days, continue this action. You can learn more about tanks for a long time, like my tank needs 4~5ml potassium added every day. 380~390 occasionally to 395 or 400.

Harder, the more you know about your tank

Do you have a chance to cross check your PO4 test result with a high sensitive test or a photometer ?

With a PO4 level of 0.25 mg your corals should look different. From the last pictures I expect the PO4 level is much lower.
