  • ready to start zeo,basic 4 all i need?

    now that i'm maintaining my Mg levels around 1200 i think i'm ready to start zeo. all parameters on point. i will not be using a zeo reactor of any kind. no room at all. i will be using either in a part of my sump or in micron sock under overflow. what would be best? this is one of my main concerns since i know u should start slow w/ zeo and i cannot control flow in sump. any advice???
    also is the zeo basic 4 all i need to get started? i think i will just continue using the black diamond carbon. works great, i get it for free, well trade frags for store stuff. anyway let me know. any suggestions or advice pertaining to me using zeo in sump would be appreciated. thanks

    The basic 4 are all you need to get started with the ZEO system. I think a micron sock would work best out of the two. Just remember to take it slow as you will have no controll as to how much flow you have going through the ZEOliths. Black Diomond is a good grade carbon in my opinion. You should be fine with that. Also make sure you keep your other params. inline with natural sea water.

      Hi DMK, the zeolites in a bag in either place will be fine--just be sure to knead the stones once or twice a day. If you wish, Madison[OUinLa] fashions an external zeo-filter for a reasonable price, which will enable the method to be even better in bringing up coral colors/growthBob

        dustin when u say take it slow u mean start dosing slowly, right?
        aged salt, what filter are u talking about. i have no room for an in sump or external reactor w/ plumbing. would be nice if i could use some sort of hang on filter to hang off sump. could i use like a regular hang on aquaclear or something or just stick w/ in sock? thanks.

          DMK, the filters Bob was talking about have a footprint of 5x5.

          The external reactor has a diamter base of 5.5 and the pump sits off to the side.

            Thnx. Madison. I just ordered a lg. external from Madison for my transitional coral holding tubs.
            DMK, the HOB filter are fine for placing your zeolites. In this case, too much flow around the stones is not a problem. Bob

              madison,
              how does the external reactor connect to the rest of the system?

                  I wish I had gotten this reactor instead of the crappy Grotech.
