        2 drops of Zeo Bac, 2-3 times a week
        Zeo Start 0.2ml x2, every day (morning and evening)
        Zeo Sponge Power 2 drops every other day
        4 drops of BioMatr every other day
        Zeo Coral Snow 2ml, one week

        Use resin material as the last channel of the filter, change 10% of water every week, adjust the skimmer to wet

        Is the zeolite reactor flow reduced now?

            It looks good, if all corals are healthy, keep the correct flow running. Use the purest water (resin material) as replacement water. Keep # 33 plan and adjust the skimmer to moist.

                Ok so update the brown stuff started to go away, and is now coming back, and water is not cristal clear. I feel like the redsea stuff just dont go down the overflow just stays up in DT. Might just put sand in the tank to help trap some stuff. Other then that corals look good colors are getting better and growing from what I can tell. Alk 7.5 mag 1320 cal 450 po4 .003

                  Might it just disappear daily in the dark period ?

                  From the picture I can really not say what it is.

                      From your dosing plan I can not see anything which does feed the algae so I would recommend to continue as planned additional dose 2 ml Coral Snow / 25 US gallons every other day at the moment. I would expect they do disappear after some time.

                      Adding sand is also a good idea, make sure to soak it well in RO water before using it. Do not use live sand. A grain size of 2 – 4 mm works well, depth ~ 2 – 4 cm. This should improve the biology.

                                What is the exact issue with the montipora coals ? They are often sensitive to a low potassium level, have you already checked it ?
