Hey, thanks for all the support and help.

Here is a bit update.

Currently all the coral have recovered and show quick growth and great PE. But currently, I noted the color is getting pale.

My po4 is 0.00 by Hanna, NO3 0-0.2 salifert, and K is around 380 they rest parameters r stable.

My currently dose is:
Xtra special 2ml/ day
Cv 4 drops/ day
SP 4 drops/ day
Start3 0.4*2/day
Zeobak 4 drops every other day
AA twice a week.
PIF 4 drops every other day.
I have followed this plan for couple weeks but no improvement.
Do u need I should try different coral food to feed them? My bioload is quite low.

I will update some pics soon.
Thanks again for all support and help

First thing I would try are two water changes each 15 within a week to refresh elements in a balanced way. This should usually improve the coloration.

hey guys.

A bit update. Finally, I have seen some success.

Currently some sps have really nice color. But I feel there is still a space for improvement.

Also, the growth rate seems slow at the momen because I haven't dosed any CA and the level of ca is always enought. PE is great.

Tank is about 1.5 years, all parameters r stable and fine.

Currently I only dose as:
Zeobak 4 drops every two days
Start3 0.8ml twice a day
SP 4 drops daily
pIF 4 drops every three day.
Coral snow, occasionally

Any suggestion will be appreciated. Really grateful for ur guys' help

That is a great improvement since the last pictures. From the pictures I would say corals tissue could be a little bit lighter, is that what you like to improve ?

Can you please also post the actual PO4 and NO3 levels ? Are corals growing well ?

Hey, yeah, i would like to light the color a bit.

the growth rate is slow to be honest, but they seem happy and healthy.

Po4 is about 0 (hanna, but i have heard it cant measure below 0.03)
No3 is 1-2. (I heavily fed the tank for a while to increase No3 a bit. i noted the better coloration when No3 is a bit high)

thanks for your help ;D

I would try B-Balance, you can dose 1 ml / 100 liters every other day for 10 days, than this quantity 2 – 3 x weekly.

thanks Alexander :D

I also have another question. I haven't seen nice growth rate in my tank. the growth is very slow and all my parameters are stable.

the light system is 6 T5 tubes: 2 kz super blue, 3 new generation, 1 Fiji purple.
and 2 radion rx as supplement.

the nitrate is still around 2, but I don't think that is a problem.

im grateful for any further suggestion.

Hello chrisevich, I offer my thoughts (not very correct)

The lamp configuration is perfect, beautiful

Nitrate is still around 2, but I don't think this is a problem. (Yes, that's right, but usually using the Zeo system, NO3 is usually undetectable, if you want, provide the dose and flow of the base product)

The growth is very slow, all my parameters are stable
( Usually change water 5~10% per week, Start3 0.8ml twice a day , if NP is low malnutrition, maybe the dose is slightly reduced to 2/3 may be correct )

hey, the nitrate was undetectable, but the color was poor at that time, and the system suffered a few times slime algae (Dino maybe). so I heavily feed the fish for a few weeks to increase the no3 to 1-2. I am thinking to reduce them a bit recently because the tank looks healthy at the moment. also, im thinking about sending away some small size fish.

I do water change every week with kz salt. PE looks good at the moment. they are definitely growing just slow lol. like the bird nest ,I have heard they grow really quickly but mine only get half cm in the last 3 or 4 months lol

really thanks for your suggestion hha

#199 Picture, I don't see any problem, the coral is very healthy and shows signs of growth. The corals in my tank are growing very fast, some are growing very full, as you said, "They definitely will slowly Continuous growth"

I will judge whether coral grows, coral size, coral tissue, growth point, coral bottom, elemental consumption, coral growth direction, etc.

I have only half a centimeter of lol in the past 3 or 4 months. (For some species of coral, I think it is normal. As for the classification of certain corals and their growth rate, this is beyond my ability.)

For some corals with good PE performance, I think it is basically a symbol of basic health.

Are the T5 bulbs 54W ? As you mention you do a weekly water change, is it 10% weekly ? Which other korallenzucht products do you already have ? Have you already checked the K+ level ?

T5 are 54W, and 10% water change every week. Potassium is normal.

I have some products 😂. CV AAHC, coral booster, xtra, xtra special, K-B, K-B strong, PIF, zeozym, acroglow.

My first recommendation is to cross check the KH with a different test kit. If it is in the range between 6.5 and 7.5 it is perfect. Next step, you can try to dose 4 ml XTra Standard 2 – 3 x weekly additional. Not sure if you have already started to dose B-Balance but it might improve growth also. Please update in about 2 weeks.

Thanks so much, I will make a comparison after two weeks.
