Sodium carbonate will raise PH quite a bit and should be added very slowly, use a drip method. Your levels are a bit off, but the phosphate stands out to me. What salt mix do you use? You might think about using something higher in alk/cal. Phosphate should be under .1, .05 is even better. Magnesium is a bit low. I think water changes are in your future. As many of the levels need to be improved, I would not try to do it with additives, especially if you can't test as you add them. I am not surprised the polyps are not opening. They will when that phosphate level drops and alk climbs.
