A well established tank with a good ratio of live rock should be able to keep up with variables such as an increase in feeding or additon of livestock. You may want to look into that and not try to rely on chemicals or addtives.

Yes I agree I don't rely on chemicals this is just media that I mix with my carbon about 80% carbon and 20% zeo. My test kit may be bad also I didn't retest it to verify but I didn't screw something up I will retest that later tonight after I get my baffles caulked in place so it can dry overnight

Maybe cross contamination- a coral slime from another coral transfered by you or someone else's hands? A very common thing when people are transfering corals we get too excited to not rinse our hands between touching corals.

This may be something you already looked into, but have you made sure that no power-heads are blowing directly onto the ACRO? I had this happen once when a Korelia was blowing directly onto a sps and it started to bleach, after I moved the power-head the coral grew back just fine.
