  • Couple questions

    1. Gross water volume of your complete system (incl. sump etc.) - US gallons / UK gallons / liter
    225 US Gallons + 60 US Gallon

    2. Net water volume (incl. sump etc.) - US gallons / UK gallons / liter
    ~225 US Gallons

    3. Are you using a CaCO2 reactor or other technique
    Once I have the demand - Currently Kalk stirrer

    4. Are you using a PO4 reactor (how long, how long ago, etc.)

    5. Are you using Ozone

    6. Are you using UV

    7. What skimmer are you using (type, rated water volume)
    Bubble King Supermarin 200
    • Heavy Bioload (Most Common) - 250 Gallons
    • Medium Bioload - 425 Gallons
    • Light Bioload - 530 Gallons

    8. What are your actual PO4 and NO3 levels

    9. What are your actual Ca, Alk and Mg levels
    Ca - 490
    Alk 8.1
    Mag 1250

    10. What filtration method do you use (refugium, DSB, Miracle Mud, etc.)
    In the future I would like a refugium - have a Kessil H380 ready to grow

    11. Type of light (Watt, color temp, how old, etc.)
    6 x Radion Gen 4 XR30 Pro running AB+

    12. What corals do you keep

    13. Tissue color (light or dark)

    14. How long has the tank been running
    1 Year

    15. Why do you want to use the ZEOvit system
    Not sure I want to Run the full Zeovit system but some of the individual bottles
    Looking for increased color and growth

    16. Any supplemental dosing (type, amount, why, etc.)
    Nothing at the Moment, just Kalk

    17. Live rock (how much, how old, etc.)
    30 pounds of LR in the sump and 100 pounds of man made rock in the display

    18. Any present problems

    19. Problem description (tissue loss tips, tissue loss base, diatom bloom, algae, etc.)
    None since early ugly stage

    20. What test kit do you use (how old, recently switched, etc.)
    Neptune Trident
    Salifert Alk
    Hanna Checker for Phos and Alk, Nit
    ICP testing

    21. Present dosing, amounts and intervals (ZEOvit, ZEObak, ZEOfood, ZEOstart, ZEOspur2, etc.)
    None at the moment

    22. Other water parameters and water stability (salinity, temp, etc.)
    Temp 78-79

    23. Which salt brand do you use
    Tropic Marin Pro Reef

    Will Marine Pure Blocks And/or Seachem Matrix interfere with KZ products?
    I see people using the KZ products at a less frequent dose then what is on the bottles. Should I start at the dose on the bottles or slowly work up?
    I am not looking to run the zeovit system but some of the KZ Products.

    I run almost full zeovit system and still have MPB's in my tank, no issues? Bare in mind, I've only been doing it for roughly 3 months, I haven't seen problems with the MPB's. It was recommended that I slowly remove them, as my nitrate and p04 drop.... but I havent done it yet.

      Compared to a better and more robust biological basis, my personal choice is some fresh and high-quality live rock, rather than some artificial materials. Any product of ZeoVit can be used in different systems. It is roughly classified into basic products for reducing nutrition, coral coloring/coral health products, treatment products, etc. It is difficult to say an exact dosage. Every Zeo product has a conventional recommended dosage. However, the appearance of coral is a good reference dosage index to adjust the dosage. This is also based on an environment with good biology, balanced basic water parameters, and low malnutrition.

      Can you enumerate which Zeo products you will use?
      What is the actual nutritional level?

      13. Organization color (light or dark)
      Dark color

      Usually, coloring and nutritional supplement products, when the coral tissue becomes lighter, the polyp expands well, and the low nutrition is not good, so the effect of adding is better.

        Welcome to!

        The manufacturer has published a good overview of the products, you can download it over here together with a general dosing recommendation:

        Most of the coloration products do show the best results in nutrient poor systems. If you take a look at the product description from the first link please let us know which products you plan to use so in conjunction with a actual PO4 and NO3 level we can give you a dosing recommendation if you like to.
