Your Phosphate is way too high. If it is that high in the regular water try testing it closer to the rocks that have a lot of cyano. Phosphates should be between 0-.10 and no higher. You need to do some water changes. Also check the source of your make up and top off water for Phosphates. if you are using an RO/DI your filters may need replacing. I would say your calcium is a little high but nothing to worry about at this point. You may want to aim some powerheads towarsd the rocks to get the water moving there too. Just my 2 cents.

Since you only have 1 coral using Ca, ur Ca won't drop that quick. IMO, you don't have to add additives til you have "alot" of corals.

The way to lower the levels is through water changes. You have absolutely no need for any additives with what you have..
