    skimmer h&s a110-f2000
    reactor aquamedic400
    n°2 6060 tunze
    light aquaspacelight 400 2x250w
    kh 7
    CA 450
    no3 0

    Welcome to ZEOvit .com, Niesmann & your English is fine. I'll assume the 280 ltrs is your total net water volume after you have allotted for the volume taken by your live rock, & live sand & partially filled sump. Your parameter are fine,although, you did not mention your Mg. level. Please test for this, as it's important. Also, with ZEOvit, resins, P04 removers, & KW are not used. Please be familar with the ZEOvit guide. For your system, I recommend the following:

    1)use 150ml. carbon in a mesh-bag, passively, in your sump. Knead this carbon bag 3x's/wk & exchange monthly.
    2)dose 750ml zeolites in a canister filter at a flow rate of 300 l/h. Your 200 l/h pump is fine. Clean the stones once or twice a day. The zeo-filter should be cycled on & off at 3 hr. intervals. Exchange the stones in 4 wks. & repost for new dosages.
    3)dose 2 drops Bak/Food daily for 7 days, then dose each at 2 drops 3x's/wk. Turn off the skimmer for 60min after dosing these. Dose these when the zeo-filter is operating. Also dose these near the filter pump.
    4)dose Start2 ,1ml 2x's/day daily. It is not necessary to turn off the skimmer when just dosing Start2
    5)Aminoacids can be dosed at the beginning to aid our corals at 2 drops 2x's/wk. This is not a must, however. Ask any question as they appear, Bob

      hi bob,
      i don' t use resins for po4 and kw.
      Why turn off 3 h the pump if my po4 are 0.03 whit test hanna ?

        Thnx. Niesmann, I allowed for your lower nutrient levels with the beginning dosages The intervals with the zeo-filter allow both aerobic & anaerobic bacterial action on the zeolites, resulting in a more even reduction of N03's/P04's. As I mentioned cycling the filter is not necessary, & you will obtain the same end result, just that it takes more time. If you interval the filter when "off" the stones in the filter must remain submerged in underwater. Bob

          Yes Niesmann, I personally have never cycled my reactor due to the fact that its teed-off from my return pump. It will still work but will take longer as mentioned by Bob. You should be fine either way
