6 Months Update:

ATI Test Results are here: Auswertungsergebnis
Everything is ok but PO4 is 1.1 hehehe ( was 0.05 before ) Thanks to PolypBooster once a week half dose. Skipped dosing it for a week and in 10 days PO4 is down to 0.5 already.
Iodine from ATI Lab working really great, I'm dosing it once a week 0.6ml for 55g NET water volume, very nice product and almost impossible to overdose in this form.

Also I decided to try another light for the refugium and got a cheap Chinese LED panel on Amazon for $25: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IVQ96KY/
Kessil H380 was still burning out my plants in the refugium even after I moved it higher and even put it on the edge of the refugium to move the hot spot, we will see how this new light will work ... First two days didn't show any difference in pH swings comparing to Kessil.

All SPS are very happy, showing more and more colors and growing! Another example that PO4 is not something to be scared off I think ...

And some pictures sure!

I'm confused: your results say that you have u. po4, I thought this meant undetectable? Ahhh I see it in the comments now!

Your phosphorus is high, but what kind of phosphorus, there are many many kinds haha. phospholipids? DNA? RNA? ATP? weeee

I agree with you mate. Many reeefers are too scared of phosphates. I have still to this day never owned a phosphate test kit. Never used GFO either. I always had surface area to spare though

Your tank is looking mighty purdy, mmmm. Veryy nicee, how much?
