I would use phosphate remover.

All my white rocks turned that color too.

I would think it’s just more ugly stage

How are you testing nitrates to get .07

Bottoming out nitrates and or phosphates can cause dinos

thats pretty rare if you feed your tank
I almost bottom out Hanna ulr nitrate said .12 and phosphates were .01 started over feeding.

it’s possible if you have a skimmer and a a refugium or a ATS plus other forms of removing crud from tank and you only feed just enough
