+1, that's good advice. Also you do not need to dose for that coral load. Wc's are all you need to replenish elements. You need to be very careful with nanos when adding anything to your tank. Don't know if your getting advice from a lfs, but I would start to ask here before you do things, there are lots of members willing to share there experience, knowledge, and let you learn from there mistakes.

This means do water changes. You'll find that pretty much no matter your problem in this hobby, at least part of the solution will be doing wc's. I think you missed the other equally important piece of advice "don't add anything to the tank that you are not testing for"
