    Hello guys

    I did modification about the dosing like you said me
    But Saturday my water was cristal clear and sunday it was milky

    I don't know why my water became milky, I think bacterial bloom ?
    Bu if it's bacterial bloom should I stop zeostart or change my dosing of zeostart ?

    I put my products like this:
    -Zeostart 1 morning (7am) and 1 the evening (7pm)
    -All the other product the evening (7pm) zeoback, zeofood, sponge power, coral snow, bio mate

    I made several modification about the dosing times:
    -Zeostart 1 morning (7am) and 1 the evening (7pm)
    -Sponge power when the lights are off
    -Zeofood in the morning (7Am)
    -Zeoback in the morning (7am)
    -coral snow when the lights are off
    -Bio mate in the morning (7am)

    Whath do you think about this ?

        Hello Alexander

        this is my dosing schedule

        zeoback 3 times 1 drop each week
        sponge power 1 drop daily
        zeofood 1 drop 2 x weekly
        zeostart 0.15 ml 2 x daily
        Phol xtra – stop dosing it at the moment
        coral snow plus 1 ml twice a week
        Bio mate 3 drops twice a week

          The dosing regimen is basically fine, anyways lets do some smaller changes:

          zeoback 2 times 1 drop each week
          sponge power 1 drop every other day
          zeofood 1 drop 1 x weekly
          zeostart 0.1 ml 2 x daily
          Phol xtra – stop dosing it at the moment
          coral snow plus 1 ml twice a week
          Bio mate 3 drops twice a week

          Is the cloudiness still visible or has it become better again in the meantime ?

            Hello Alexander

            Thank you for your informations
            I do the modification about my dosing schedule

            For my water it became crystal clear 2 day after the day it was milky
            I don't understand

              No worry, some kind of a temporary cloudiness does usually not cause any problems, glad to hear the water is clear again.

                Hello guys
                today I made m'y test
                Can you me your opinion about thé results please ?

                Ph 8.15
                Ça 430
                Kh 8.3
                Mg 1320
                K+ 400
                Sal 34g/l
                No3 0
                Po4 ( photomètre Hanna phosphorus ulr ) 2 ppb = 0.006 ppm

                All m'y test are made with salifert
                Thé salinity IS measured with réfractomètre Po4 with checker Hanna phosphorus ULR ( I have thé reasult in ppb and I use thé convertion table to have thé reasult in ppm)

                Thank in advance
                best regard

                  The basic water parameters look good, and keeping the Zeo basic plan, dry rocks take a long time for biology. Did the signs of coral TN disappear? What is the current state of the zeolite reactor? Also measure the effluent flow from the reactor to get an hourly flow rate to make sure it is fine. Change the water by 5-10% every week while vacuuming the sand

                    Hello Jacky Thank you for your Quick answer
                    yes m'y parameters looks good but l'aube m'y No4 and Po4 level should bé a little bit higher ?
                    For the TN it's Always thé same thé LPS looks good anfmd for the Sps it dépends on thé coral I don't know why....
                    I Always measured m'y clown réactor and it was good
                    For the water change I change 10liters every Sunday

                    have a nice day

                      In low-nutrition environment water quality, corals are indeed no problem. It is recommended to use a small container to collect the flow at the outlet of the reactor for 30 seconds and the volume x120, so that the wine can get an hourly flow (this is an important key). The first zeolite material is retained in the first 4 weeks, and the next exchange interval is about 6 weeks. Zeo Bac x 10 days after each replacement, otherwise twice a week. The tank is initially a Zeo system, so replace 50% of the zeolite material. In about 2 weeks, if the corals are healthy, switch the reactor to continuous flow

                        Hello guys

                        Today I dis my water change
                        I measured thé flow on m'y zéolite réactor and I think it was a little bit higher
                        I have 300ml of zeolit on m'y réactor so according to thé zeovit guide my flow have to be 120litre per hour maximum
                        M'y flow was 133 litres per hour...
                        Do you think a higher flow Can be nécrose on m'y SPS ?
                        Currently m'y flow is 100litre per hour what do you think ?

                          If I understand correctly, it looks pretty good. For your tank, the reactor flow rate is 140 liters per hour. If corals are healthy and the phenomenon of TN does not continue to occur, then maintaining the current flow is good, no changes are needed, and continue to implement # 19 plan to keep NSW water parameters as stable as possible (including potassium) and change the water every week 5 to 10%. Also keep in mind that dry rocks take a while and biology is still developing

                          Have you noticed that the sand surface is whiter? And biology is getting better and better

                            Thank you for your answer Jacky
                            no you don't understand because I don't explain clearly dorry for m'y poor english.....

                            My tank IS 140liter net
                            I have 300ml of zeolit in the réactor According to the guide the maximum flow with 300ml is 120 liter per hour

                            This.afternoon I measured the flow and it was higher because it was 133 liter per hours
                            so I changed my flow for 100 liters per hour

                            Do you think this flow is better ? And an higher flow Can produce nécrose ?

                            I so a water change weekly 10 liters
                            I think my Sand IS more white and algae don't grow a lot

                                The continuous flow rate of the reactor per hour and the zeolite material are based on the amount of net water in the tank, not the amount of zeolite material

                                140 liters net. = Zeolite material 0.35 liters
                                140 liters net. = Continuous flow per hour of the reactor is about 140 liters
