Wow. Don't just throw it in after it 'looks clear'. You'll cause yourself more issues. Follow your manufacturer's directions. They're there for a reason. If you're going to keep coral, I wouldn't keep hypo, in fact I'd keep 1.026.

I’d add in some bottled nitrifying bacteria like microbacter 7 or something similar. You’re showing ammonia and that is extremely toxic to fish.
 

What's the first thing you do when you see algae forming in your tank?
