    Hi John, welcome to ZEOvit.com & our friendly forum I'm just not exactly sure your question focus, ie. #18 & 19. Do you mean you're corals have tissue recession? I clean my viewing panes every 3rd-4th day as a haze develops. If not, but you're needing dosing recommendations, let me know, & I'll be happy to do so. I can tell you that your maintenance time will be decreased. How much, of course, depends on the previous time given, but mine was reduced by a factor of 50%, with better results. Bob

      Sorry Bob,

      I guess it is not really a problem, so to speak, I have been told by some that the maintenance of glass cleaning and such decreases with the lower nutrient load, my corals look pretty good actually, but as you know, we as reefkeepers always want more "bling" .

      I guess my largest question is this, given how my system works now, decent color, great growth, will the zeo program help me with the chores of maintaing the reef.. As I stated, I do use quite a few approaches to keep my tank looking the way it does, I guess I am just looking for a little less labor. But, I do feed my fish well, and the part about lowering their feeding worries me, my majestic may not take well to that...

      BTW, Gary and I have spoke a bit about the Zeo, and since you seem to have the system dialed in, I was hoping you would reply...


      Thanks again, John

        Welcome, John. I'll let other users chime in with their ZEOvit satisfaction/dissatisfaction. But, one thing I can promise you....it will only take days to get everything to your door.

            John, I keep 4 angel fish in my reef, fed every other day for years w/o my fish becoming mal-nourished. To help you with the husbandry topic, my WC's have gone down drastically & I mean drastically, as this was my main husbandry focus on my previous reef set-up, along with expensive & time intensive chemical filtration.

                      Hi Nick, I presently do a 5% WC/wk with ZEOvit. Before, I generally do 10%/wk Bob
