Consultation on the use of the products

I have 6 coral LPS, 2 soft, 1 rose.
The total container is 260 liters.
Recently I have noticed that the blastazuma coral loses color in some places. The intention is transparent (no color at all)

Do I need to start adding certain materials? Maybe ABVE.?
I use reef salt.

ca - 410
mg - 1260
alk - 8.3
po4 - 0.01
no3 - 2


Would appreciate help.

Another question about the way I do not know which method to choose.
Looks like the most convenient and suitable for me is Part 2 (soft and lps coral) but what happens if I want to add in the future SPS I will be able to "upgrade" the method and continue as usual.?
Because part 3 is quite stressful and made me get lost


I would be happy to explain ...

I do not find it possible to edit messages so I am sorry for the multiplicity of posts. I did again tests after the algae were gone, NO3 - 0 PO4 - 0.03

The corals look fine. You can start doing ABEV as you are already low in nutrient level but to start with you can use dosing them half of the recommended volume and then after few weeks slowly increase them to full recommended doses.
As far which part to follow I would suggest you can pick the easy one and then if you shift to SPS then pick up the detailed ones.

You can prepare solutions from Calcium and KH Buffer only or use Ca Plus, Mg Plus, KH Plus
