  • Starting Zeovit

    Hi,

    Tank 500 l , can I start with 100% RRR ?

  • #2
    Basically yes but I would prefer a natural material. If just dry rock is used the cycle will take much more time so you will need some patience.

      1. Gross water volume of your complete system (incl. sump etc.) - US gallons / UK gallons / liter = 500 liter
      2. Net water volume (incl. sump etc.) - US gallons / UK gallons / liter = 450 lit
      3. Are you using a CaCO2 reactor or other technique = Later Dastaco2 A1
      4. Are you using a PO4 reactor (how long, how long ago, etc.) = no
      5. Are you using Ozone = no
      6. Are you using UV = no
      7. What skimmer are you using (type, rated water volume) = Deltec 1000i
      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.) Fleece filter Clarisea automatic
      11. Type of light (Watt, color temp, how old, etc.) = Maxspect RSX 320 watt
      12. What corals do you keep = SPS
      13. Tissue color (light or dark)
      14. How long has the tank been running = new setup
      15. Why do you want to use the ZEOvit system = low nutrients for SPS
      16. Any supplemental dosing (type, amount, why, etc.)
      17. Live rock (how much, how old, etc.) = no , 100% RRR
      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.) Hanna + Salifert + ATI icp
      21. Present dosing, amounts and intervals (ZEOvit, ZEObak, ZEOfood, ZEOstart, ZEOspur2, etc.)
      22. Other water parameters and water stability (salinity, temp, etc.)
      23. Which salt brand do you use = NSW with salinity 34ppt

      Do i need to shake the zeovit in the start-up period ? shut off pump every 3 hours ?

      I will start up new tank this week , 450 liters can you pls inform dosage to be implemented , Zeobak,Zeovit,Zeostart and Sponge power .

        For detailed Zeo 14-day cycle and Zeo basic product dosage addition, please refer to #7 in this link

        https://forum.zeovit.com/forum/gener...nformation-faq

        The net water volume 400 liters (100 US gallons) water tank volume, using 1 liter (1 pack) of ZeoVit material. The maximum flow rate per 1 liter of ZeoVit material through the filter per hour shall not exceed 400 liters (100 US gallons). Make sure to run the reactor at a continuous flow.

        If you have the opportunity, the zeolite reactor is pulled once a day. Even if there is no such opportunity, it can still work well, just keep the flow rate (each 1 liter of material is not more than 400 liters per hour)

        Regarding your tank, the amount of zeolite material is about 1.1 liters (the reactor has a flow rate of about 450 liters per hour). Zeo activated carbon quantity 0.45 liters (using malt bag, passive flight, replacement every 30 days)

          Thanks Jacky , the automatic reactor that i bought is not possible to change the pump flow i think , its a pump from 600l/h , what are the possibilities here ?

            I don’t have much experience with this, but what I can say is, 1. The correct quantity of ZeoVit material and the measurement of the equipment's operating conditions (load), not no-load,2. Use the correct amount of zeolite in the reactor and turn on the equipment to keep it running. Collect the water outlet of the reactor for 30 seconds at a volume of x120, so that you can get a continuous flow rate per hour

              Received delivery today , now I can start with the build up , Zeo reactor will be little bit later this week , scape wil be the first priority en than the electrical powerbars , we know what to do this week , next week Saturday delivery of 500 liters Nsw en start up with Zeo.

                I don’t know how to place your equipment, let us pay attention to this a little bit. The outlet of the zeolite reactor should be avoided as far as possible from the skimmer inlet

                  Ok , will take this in mind , thanks.Will put reactor in last compartiment next tot the return pump. Or will this give air bubbles to the return ?

                    If my understanding is correct, then use some high-quality fresh live rock to isolate bubbles and avoid being directly inhaled by pump

                      If the reactor water outlet is submerged they usually do not create air bubbles.

                        Question about the active carbon , must be activated in 90° degree RO water ?

                          It Is not a must but the hot water does remove a lot of air from the carbon which makes it more effective.

                            So , started Saturday with this project , initial start up plan according your Zeo 14-day cycle and Zeo basic product dosage addition . First impression after 3 days is that the water is still cloudy ? is this normal in start up ? tomorrow I will dose the standard dosage of Zeobak,Zeostart en Sponge power.

                              Some cloudiness is common for fresh systems so nothing to care much about at the moment. I would recommend you to continue as planned.
