  • Bak and food quantity when using start2

    Hi~ all~
    I heard that When Using zeostart2, I can reduce the dosing of bak and food.
    A few days later, I will receive the start2 from Madison. Which quantity should
    I dose bak and food after using start2?

    Now..I am using start1 and here is dosing schedule (100 net gallon and phase2)
    For 2 weeks from changing new zeovit media
    -->2drops bak and food every other day(3times in a week)
    -->start1 : 0.3ml 3times a day (total 1ml)

    After 2weeks from changing new zeovit media
    -->2drops bak and food (2 times in a week)
    -->start1 : 0.3ml 3times a day (total 1ml)

    I should change the media (5th times) in end of April and start zeostart2.
    Could you show me the dosing schedule?

    Thanks...

    From my understanding cut bac in half and keep food the same. Also if you are dosing AAHC cut that in half aswell...

    Peace, Jeff

        Hi Vince, From your current dosing regimen, Start2 can be exactly substituted for Start1 in the same quantities. Refer to the sticky "Start2 dosing guide" for Start2 excess visual cues. Bak/ food7 should also remain as you are currently dosing As Jeff mentioned though, if one is also dosing AAHC, your food7 dosage then should be reduced by 1/3 to avoid slime build-up, etc. as Start2 seems very concentrated. Alternatively, if one dilutes Start2 with 50% quantity RODI water[50% strength solution] one can dose Food7 in = quantity to bak & still use AAHC without concern for slime, air-bubbles formation or darkening coral tissue. This dilution solution allows for the optimim effect then in all the basic four. In this case, Start2 guide recommendations on dosing remain true. Bob

          You said I should remain dosing bak and AAHC, same dosing start2 like
          sticky thread(I have read it already ),and reduce the food 1/3...

            Yes, Vince, that's correct. I believe you'll like Start2 & my experience with it thus far, has shown it to be perfect successor to Start1. Bob
