Strange traces of metal in my tank

I am facing problems with metals in the the tank (30x30x40cm)that I do have from February, with equipment made with 2 MP10QD M, 1 Radion XR 15 Pro, and skimmer QQ1.
The values that MarinLab find at the highest ranges are:
Al
Ba
Cu
Mo (Molybdenum)
Zn
Salt used: Royal Nature Advanced pro formula Salt.

What the test finds as too low:
S (sulfur)
B (Boron)
Li (Lithium)
I (Iodine)
Thank you very much for your help.

some people on this forum have had problems with the magnet in their MP40 busting open and introducing metals causing problems with their corals......

The first test that I've sent to MarinLab via Triton was with 2 Jebao RW4 into the tank, the second test with the MP10.

Run a magnet through the sand to see if it picks up any metal.
