    5. Are you using Ozone
    6. Are you using UV
    7. What skimmer are you using (type, rated water volume)
    8. What are your actual PO4 and NO3 levels
    9. What are your actual Ca, Alk and Mg levels
    10. What filtration method do you use (refugium, DSB, Miracle Mud, etc.)
    11. Type of light (Watt, color temp, how old, etc.)
    12. What corals do you keep
    13. Tissue color (light or dark)

    18. Any present problems
    19. Problem description (tissue loss tips, tissue loss base, diatom bloom, algae, etc.)
    20. What test kit do you use (how old, recently switched, etc.)
    21. Present dosing, amounts and intervals (ZEOvit, ZEObak, ZEOfood, ZEOstart, ZEOspur2, etc.)
    22. Other water parameters and water stability (salinity, temp, etc.)

    To start off, Hi im Mike im new here. Im very interested in ZEOvit and plan on using it someday. I would like to introduce myself, and get some recommendations on some ZEOvit dosing. Thanks!

    1.58 gallon tank, and a 30 gallon sump.
    2. Around 74 gallons of water
    3.Yes, calcium reactor with Co2. Plan to add a kalk reactor soon.
    4.Yes, for about 2 weeks with Phosban or sometimes carbon
    7. Myreefcreations mr-2r recirculating skimmer ran by a pressure rated panwolrd pump rated for tanks up to 450 gallons. (overskim )
    8.P04-1.0 N03- 30 (New cycle on tank i just recently re started my whole system.)
    9.Ca-450, other havent tested for yet
    10.Liverock, protein skimmer, no sand, no refugium.
    11.Two 250 watt metal halides with 10 k color. 2 months old. One 90 watt URI actinic VHO bulb and one 90 Watt URI White VHO bulb.
    12.None at the moment, but mainly SPS, some LPS, and some zoos and softies
    13.Light and dark (before i gave most of my corals away)
    14. 2 and a half weeks (rocks are cooking as we speak, they're on week 4)
    15. Less nutrients, happy corals, nicer looking tank, inspiration from tanks ive seen on the ZEOvit system.
    17.around 120 pounds, cooking at the moment. Some a year old some just bougth 2 weeks ago. None is in the tank ATM.
    18.None right now b/c my tank is empty.
    19.Tissue loss, bleaching, some RTN, dark colors, some poor polyp extension, algea, particls in the water.
    20.Salifert, about a year old now
    21.None at the moment.
    22.salinty- 1.025, Temp- 85 (waiting on chiller), ph- 8.1, ORP- 326

    Thats it for now. Thanks for providing this great website.

    for zeo, you wont need the actually isnt recommended...dont ask my why though

    wait for bob aka aged salt as far as dosing goes.

      Hi Mike & welcome to It's much easier beginning ZEOvit with a new system & I'd strongly recommend curing your rocks while implementing ZEOvit which will speed this process along much more quickly & completely. Do not use KW as it precipitates P04's temporarily out of solution but only to have these P04's return into solution as the pH varies allowing algae fuels. Save your money on the KW reactor, & instead obtain a zeo-filter. Plz. read all the stickies at the top of this forum so that you thoroughly have a good understanding the basics of the ZEOvit method. For your system, I'd recommend the following:

      1)dose 3/4 Cup carbon in a filter sock, passively, in your sump, kneaded 3x's/wk & exchanged monthly.
      2)dose 3/4 ltr. zeolites in a zeo-filter at a water flow rate of 75gph. Cycle the stones on & off at 3hr. intervals. Pump-clean the stones 1-2 x's/day with 5-10 reps each time. Exchange the zeolites every 6wks.
      3)dose 3 drops Bak & Food daily for 2wks. then 3 drops each 2x's/wk. Dose these when the zeo-filter is "on" Turn off your skimmer for 60min after dosing these.
      4)dose 5 drops Start2 2x's/day. Dose Start2 when the filter is "on" but it is not necessary to turn off your skimmer when just dosing Start2

      Ask questions if you need answers, as there are many knowledgeable zeo-users here who are willing to help. Bob
