ive put a poly filter in the sump and running over Seachem Cuprisorb to lose all the heavy metals. Also im dosing iodine and i will up my salt level.

do anyone have any idea what i can do?

if your no3 is 0, i would bring that up higher 3-10ppm. might not be the reason it lost its color, but everything else looks good

Noo… im planning on buying a seneye to know what the par is on the sandbed etc… do u recommend this par meter?
You might want to reach out to your LFS or area club (if you have one) to see if you can rent one instead of buying one. There is also an app called Photone that you can use (I use it for regular par checks after checking with my LFS’s seneye) that is within ballpark numbers of what a par meter would give you.
