My zeobak smells bad. Very bad. This is normal? Or he rotted?

Lets try to rise the water level in your skimmer a little bit to skim more wet and clean the skimmer daily. You should get about cup per day for the next 2 weeks or so.

The Balling components do often contain beside Ca and KH a mineral salt as a further component:

It is called sodium free salt.

The bad small of ZeoBac is OK as long as there are no slimy particles in the bottle. The smell will get reduced over the time.

Can i do without reconfiguring my skimmer? It's very hard for adjusting..
Hmm..I don't use free NaCl mix.. I don't use any trace elements. Do you can advice about using trace elements for my aquarium?

Can you tell exactly which products you use to supplement KH/Ca ?

Also what is the actual PO4 and NO3 level ?

No3 2ppm

Sounds good, nutrient concentrations are perfect also.

It really depends to the corals, can you post some actual coral pictures and a list of the korallenzucht products you already have ?

Thank you for the pictures, looks like those corals where growing under higher nutrient concentrations before as the older parts of the corals are still brown while new growth is much lighter.

The coral in the front of the first pictures does have boring algae in the skeleton already while the higher nutrient concentrations in the past. You can see it clearly, if the tissue is removed you will see that the skeleton is green already not white as usual.

Anyways as the new growth looks much better I would give the corals time, your dosing regimen is fine, additional I would recommend to do regular water changes of 10 – 15% weekly at the moment with a well balanced salt.
