  • filtersock and zeovit

    Hi all

    It is OK when using zeovit?

    Can the mulm be filtered by it?

    I use one off and on, and I see no change either way

    Tank Specs:60g Cube SPS/Clam tank, ASM G1x Skimmer, DIY ZEOvit Reactor, 1x400w EVC 14k, Marine Life Aquatics CR-250 CaRx (RIP)

    Not sure yet.....Build Thread to come!

      No problem. Just make sure you clean it on a regular basis (which should be done with or without ZEOvit IMO).
      Fish eat poop....tastes just like chicken.

        My main return pump has a sponge on it, to prevent death of little gobies that sometimes end up in the sump.
        Before zeovit this sponge collected crud and had to be cleaned pretty regularly. Since going zeovit it has stayed clean and I cannot even remember when I last cleaned it. I would suspect a similar result with the filter sock, although it's a lot finer than a sponge you'll still have to clean it.
        Be interesting if you have already been using a filter sock, to see the comparison after a few months of zeovit.

          I am slowly converting to the zeovit system and have a question. A friend gave me a pice of artificial coral (Please don't throw any stones!!). My skimmer stopped skimming!! It is a Venturi model, the manufacturer recommended I thouroughly clean the skimmer, which I did, and I allowed it to run 24 hours in frsh water to dissolve any undiscovered calciuk deposits. It produces bubbles the way it should but no foam is produced. I then re-installed my older air-driven Aqua-medic and still no foam although the reaction coolumn is full of bubbles! The corals and fish look great and the tgridacnas have never looked better. Any suggestions? This has been going on for almost a week now. Would be grateful for any comments!

            Hi Lawrence, Welcome to the Zeovit forum.
            It does sound like this has something to do with the artificial coral. Perhaps remove it for a time, keep the skimmate cup clean, and see what happens.
