For advanced coloration of corals, you can use AF Energy, AF Build, AF Vitality, AF Aminomix, and AF Power Food. These supplements help the corals to have these vibrant colors you see. As far as trace minerals go, you would encompass that through the use of the Macro and Micro minerals and dose at equal ratios.
If your tank has a higher bioload, you can also use siporax to create more surface area for bacteria to grow. Additionally, you may want to use Zeomix too. Most users are having great success using what is referred to as the stacking method. One single fluidized reactor, with Zeomix on the bottom, AF Carbon stacked on top of the Zeomix, and finally AF Phos Minus on top of the AF Carbon. This helps the system to run very low in nutrients, in cases where the bioload is higher than normal, or the tank is run with little live rock or no sand, as they are also beneficial for denitrifying bacteria to grow.

What about Coral Food. Seem like not mentioned much.
