    Hi i have a 24 cube with 20g fuge/sump. 150W hqi 14K and 2 32W 50/50, I got a 65g super skimmer. Cheatos and rock rubble in the fuge. Main tank has Sps and lps and 1 clam. No Cacium reactor. I use Bionic 2 part for alk and calcium seems to be doing a good job so far.

    My question is is it worth Having Zeovit in such a small system? Will my tank survive the initiall dose? Does anyone use zeovit in small tanks?
    Basically this is my first reef tank had it up for 9 months now, Eventually I will upgrade to Bigger tank just want to get more experiance in reefing first.

    Welcome to Zeoville Greg aka "the dark side"

    There have been many users keeping nano <12 gallon tanks successfully on the zeo method. I have no personal experience with this small of a system, but it can be done with great results. Work on maintaing stable levels close to NSW and practice good husbandry as these skills will help you with any method you choose. If you have any questions regarding Zeovit and/or dosing schedules, post your questions as we have many knowledgeable people willing to help out.

      I have read somewhere that if i use Zeovit my Fuge will Crash. Is this true do i need to take it out?

        I wouldn't use the term "crash", but as the Zeo goes through it's phases and your tank becomes more nutrient (nitrate and phosphate) free, there will be less in the form of nutrients for any macroalgae you may be growing in your refugium. The maco will either slow it's growth to almost nothing or start to die off. I still have Chaeto in my refugium and it grows reeeeeeeaaaaaaalllllllllllll slow. So, keep your refugium and just watch the macoalgae growth, or lack thereof.
