Ok... First, why are you adding chemicals? Is something low? Like calcium or alkalinity etc? I had my cube for a year before needing to dose 8mL's of B-ionic 2 part every night.

Also, I wouldn't add any "daily" chemicals at all. Your water changes should replenish enough. What salt mix are you using?

I use Instant Ocean Reef Crystals.

Oh and your light schedule should be ok. Most run 9 hours a day.

Your corals will feed from your light and whatever you feed your fish. Most don't feed corals unless you have really difficult corals that need to be target fed. I haven't fed a coral yet other then some phyto which I stopped a few months back.
