  • zeovit supplys are in new info needed

    Ok I got my supplys in last night .My tank has changed sense I got my last info about dosing .Now my tank has about 100 gallons of water and I removed my mud sump and bio balls so I have one sump only just a sump nothing in it except the new carbon . How should I dose from here ?

    Hi John, to exact your current dosing needs, you'll need to complete the questionnaire sticky[6th from the top of this forum]. Thnx. Bob

      ok but it will have to wait till I get back home .the only thing that has changed is the fact that I removed the second sump and I got a larger skimmer and removed all the bio balls from my system .But OK I will send the wife up to the LFS to have my water tests done and get back to you .Thanks

          this proves it, I'm the nicest guy on

          1 Gross water volume of my complete system 135 gallon

          2. net water volume / about 100 gallon total water volume

          3.are you using a caco2 reactor / yes Jetstream one

          4.are you using a po4 reactor / no but I am running posban in a bag

          5.are you using ozone / no

          6.are you using uv/ no

          7.what skimmer are you using / E.T.S.S enviromental tower super skimmer by AETECH he got a bigger one!

          8.what are your actual po4 and no3 levels / po4 one plus no3 25

          9.what are your actual Ca,Alk,Mg levels/ Ca 500 Alk 12 Mg 1340

          10.what filtration method do you use / first the tank water goes into the first sump then across the Miracle Mud ( were the calupa and some live rock are ) then over and through some blue and white filter material into the finall chamber of the first sump then the genx 1800 pump send some of the water through the skimmer and some through the heater chiller .If it goes through skimmer then it enters the first chamber of the second sump and over the bio balls in the first chamber .If it does through the heater chiller then the water goes through the posban bag and into the second chamber .All this water then goes through another filter material that is blue and white then through the two genx1800 pumps back into the tank .

          11.type of light / maristar fixture with 3 haline 250w 14000 phonix bulbs and 4 t5 super blues 39 watts

          12.what corals do I keep / xenia , polys , zoos, bubble coral , orange tree , anenomes , some others growning not real sure what they are yet

          13. tissue color / xenia grows like a weed , polys seem happy , zoos ,are starting to spread , mushrooms are starting to muliply , anenomes seem unhappy loss of color and size but they have split within the last two months ,

 long has the tank been running / up for about 8 years all the new equipment is less than a year old new equipment is ( light and calcium reactor )

          15. why do I want to use the ZEOvit system / I like the idea and I have a algae issue and my corals don't seem to change in shape or color and the why the systen deals with po4 and other pollutins sound more stable .

          16. any supplemental dosing / yes one cap of purple up one cap of coral-vital a day one cap of kent marine super chelated iron and one cap of kent marine concentrated iodine a week

 rock / yes about one third of my tank is live rock 8 years

          18.any present problems / yes algae a stringy kind and a type that grows in a ball feels like brillo pad but removes easy and levels of po4 and no3 ned better managing

          20. what test kit do you use/ red sea ammonia ,nitrate no2 , nitrate no3,and doc wellfish calcium and kh and salifert's magnesium I also have two pinpiont ph monitors

          21.not using

          22. other water parameters and water stability / 1.025 salinity , 78- 81 temp

              yes that correct except I no longer am running phosban and I have removed the first sump altogether and I got a large skimmer and removed the bio balls

              and yes you are nice

                  TANK SHOTS

                  THE TANKS IS A 135 GALLON

                  With the tank and the new skimmer and the one sump and the water through the new reactor minus the live rock I would say its still about 100 gallons water volume

                  SUMP AREA

                  MY DIY REACTOR

                  I have a picture of everything in my tank so if you would like to see a close up let me know


                  some algea as you can see in the pictures and sense I removed everything( mug sump and Bio Balls) some red film at the bottom edge of the glass .

                  21# one cap of purple up at night every other day and one cap of mark weiss coral vitalizer every other day .

                  Hope this helps thanks guys I can't wait to get this up and running I just got my first 6 month supply of stuff

                      Not till I get home tonight about 9.00 pm central time


                      • #12
                        Until then, if your dKH is 12, you'll need to slowly decrease this to 6-8 with the ZEOvit, before beginning the ZEOvit method, o/w corals can be stressed. Do this over the next wk. or so. BTW, the parameters before beginning ZEOvit:
                        Mg 1200-1350
                        KH 6-8 & kept narrowly stable
                        salinity 1.023-26

                          I have had my reactor CO2 off for about a week so I believe everything should be in stardards but we will see tonight .Thanks again

                          P.S What did you think of my reactor


                          • #14
                            The reactor looks good. What did you use for the base plate?

                              End cap fit right in .I thought it sealed but when I got home today the tank was blowing are and all the pumps downstairs were running dry. So I would suggest put on a external sealer at that point .I just got done doing that myself .All the pumps are ok still working and all .

                              So after a large water change here is were we are at

                              CA 400
                              KH 6
                              MAG 1230
                              Salinity 1.021 but going up to 1.024
                              PO4 0.06
