  • The sun and zeovit

    My future tank will be located on place that the sun light is coming
    (I do not know the exact grammer.. sorry. Do you understand what I say? )

    Some say the sun can make algae bloom.

    In zeovit system, the sun light can do harm in my tank?

    I don't think so. but I wanna ask my zeovit experts...

    thanks in advance~

    The color of the light produced by the sun is favorable to algae growth. But, if you don't have nutrients to feed the algaes then it won't be a problem. Continue with ZEOvit and it should work just fine.

      In the summer time my tank get about 4 hours sunlight from the left side. I do not notice any algae caused by the natural light. It is really impressive how much power the natural sunlight has. If the sun is shining in the tank you can not see anything from the bulbs.

          ALOT of people utilize the sun in much larger tanks and simply use less wattage bulbs to make up for a lose of sunlight during the winter.

          As Madison said, if you're far into ZEO and you don't have a nutrient rich system, you shouldn't see algae, but there should be an increase in growth (The sun is a better bulb then a 10K ).

          Best of luck!

            Wait few months(or year,lol) and I hope my farm will be finished till then,loot of aquariums close to big windows where they will received direct sunlight for aprox 7-8 hours daily.
            I do some experiment last months with direct sunlight and I can told you one thing for sure,screw artifical lights,lol.
            Growth and colours in corals what receive direct sunlight for few hours daily are excelent.
            And I never saw caulerpa racemosa grow so fast and with branches wider of 1 cm in diameter.
            I have same amount of algae on glas panel what receive sunlight as in glass panel what are under artifical light.

                Hi Nick, in most reefs, the nutrients will be higher than in a ZEOvit tank, with the result from natural sun creating unsightly algae growth. Bob

                        Couldn't have a better light source IMO as long as you have a good chiller
