Iodine .0113 PPM
Barium .0093 PPM
Zinc .0019 PPM

I use ESV B-Ionic 2 Part. I have been suffering with dyno's for a while. Before I follow Macks Reef I was told to get everything in line.

Phosphate .06
Nitrate 4.6- I put in Seachem matrix blocks 2 months ago and it dropped my nitrates to zero. I just removed them and dosing nitrate to increase. Tank mostly SPS with some softies.

Mag 440
Calcium 430
Alk 8
Salinity 35

Don't know what to do and what to use?

Any thoughts?

Can you post the whole ICP?

You may or may not benefit from a trace element and/or iodine supplement. I never found supplemental iodine useful, but some folks claim it helps their aquaria.

Ignore barium, IMO. It has no known biological role.
