    Hi Conqui1pr, & welcome to Plz. check out the stickies at the top of this forum for a thorough understanding of the ZEOvit method A skimmer is necessary for implementing the ZEOvit method, as much of the nutrient reduction revolves around it exportation of same, coupled with the zeolites filtration to render a balanced depletion in both N03's & P04's. For your system, I recommend the following, once your skimmer is in place:
    1) dose 1/4 Cup carbon, in a filter sock, passively in your sump, kneaded every other day, changed out monthly.
    2)dose 1/4 ltr. zeolites in a canister filter at a water flow rate through the filter of ~30gph. A little more or less is fine. These are exchanged every 6wks. Clean the stones by shaking or if you have a handle pump arrangement[typical zeo-filter], pump the stones up & down about 5-10 repetitions once or twice a day.
    3)dose bak/food 1 drop daily x2wks, then 1 drop each 2x's/wk.
    4)dose Start2 at 2 drops 2x's/day daily
    Ask questions here anytime along the line. Bob
