  • First 4 week change please help

    Hello fellow Zeo Heads

    Well it is now time for the 4 week change, please can you help me on correct dosing?

    Tank : 100 gallon including sump

    Zeo reactor : 3 hour on/off cycle @ 350 L per hour

    Current Dosing :

    Zeo Start : 0.3 ml three times a day
    ZeoBak/Food 5ml twice a week


    CA 450
    PH 0.1
    Ni 0
    PH 8.2
    SG 1025
    MG 1200

    Tank is looking great, still some very small cyno patches, coral’s are growing great and colour is better than ever, just one humulis that is still very brown.

    Please can you help me on next change and dosing ?

    Thanks Everyone!!!

    Hi Christiaan, good news about things thus far For your system, I recommend the following:
    1) 1 Cup Carbon
    2) 1ltr. zeolites with a flow rate of 400l/h. This will be your maximum dose of the stones & flow rate. These now will exchanged every 6wks. I use about 10 "seasoned" stones of different
    sizes from the last batch to acclerate the seeding process. Continue cycling the zeo-filter for 4-5 mos. until phase 3 is reached[see sticky]
    3) dose Bak/food7-- 3 drops ea. every other day for the 1st 2wks. with new zeolites, then, 2x's/wk.
    4) dose Start1-- .2ml 3x's/day daily, Bob

      Ok Bob thank you, will do as recommended.

      I am going to order some more Zeo Goodies from Gary this week, what would you recommend in terms of the other Zeo product’s ie Amino, spur etc……

      Thanks for the help yet again!!!!

        Christiaan, I'd recommend waiting until the next zeolite exchange[2nd] at 2 1/2 mos. before beginning the zeo-supplements, as there's plently of "stored"-nutrients available for the corals. I would then recommend PIF/Fe, AAHC & wait again until the 3rd zeolite exchange[4mos.] before comtemplating Spur-ME & Spur2. Bob
