    9. What are your actual Ca, Alk and Mg levels 450 6.7 1400
    10. What filtration method do you use (refugium, DSB, Miracle Mud, etc.) nothing only skimmer
    11. Type of light (Watt, color temp, how old, etc.) 2x mh 250 w white + 6x t5 80w + 2x ecotech gen 4

    20. What test kit do you use (how old, recently switched, etc.) salifert
    21. Present dosing, amounts and intervals (ZEOvit, ZEObak, ZEOfood, ZEOstart, ZEOspur2, etc.) no , sometimes adding zeovitality
    22. Other water parameters and water stability (salinity, temp, etc.) 1025 , 25.3 c
    23. Which salt brand do you use aquaforest reef for sps

    1. Place 2 liters of Zeovit into the Zeo reactor. The water flow is about 800 liters per hour. Connect the reactor pump to a clock timer and run the reactor pump at intervals of 3 hr on/3 hr on/3 hr on. When turning off the pump, make sure that the zeolite is not exposed to air. Clean materials daily. Leave the zeolite in the filter for 4 weeks until your first change. This is the first replacement interval, other intervals can be extended to 6-8 weeks.

    2. Put 0.8 liters of activated carbon in filter socks and keep in passive water flow (change every 30 days). Rub the charcoal every day to keep the surface clean. Most users use korallenzucht toner for perfect results.

    3. Take 8 drops of ZeoBac daily for the first 2 weeks, otherwise 8 drops 2 to 3 times a week. Take ZeoStart 0.8ml 2 times a day (morning and evening). Dose before starting the Zeo reactor pump.

    4. If you have Zeo SpongePower product, 8 drops every other day (recommended to have one of the product/Zeo core foundation).

    After that, you can use other products for coral coloring. Adjust your skimmer so it's slightly damp and keep it as clean as possible for export. 5-10% weekly water change with high quality salt
    Basic water parameters, as stable as possible to keep NSW within the following ranges:

    KH 6.5 – 7.5
    Ca 400 – 420 mg
    Mg 1250 – 1300 mg
    K + ~ 380 mg

    For malnourished environments, K+ (potassium) appears to have become an important element. I suggest you get a test suite for this element as well and post the results.
