            Micro-reefer, with ZEOvit method, it is paramount to run your system with the parameters near NSW. In this regard, lower your KH to 6.5-8. Your other parm's are inline. No KW is dripped with ZEOvit. Be sure to read & understand the ZEOvit guide, a sticky at the top of this forum. Be sure to test your system for P04's/N03's. Dose 1/4 Cup of carbon in a mesh-bag, passively in your sump, kneaded every other day. Change these with new carbon every 4wks. Dose 1/4ltr. zeolite in a zeo-filter at a flow rate of 25-40gph, cycled on & off every 3hrs. Clean the stones 2x's/day. Exchange the zeolites in 4wks intially then the interval can extend to every 6wks. Dose bak/food7--1 drop/1drop every other day for the first 2wks with new zeolites, then 2x's/wk. Turn off your skimmer for 60min after dosing Bak/Food7. Dose these in front of the intake zeo-filter pump. Dose Start .25ml 2x's/every other day thruout the first cycle. When just dosing Start, it is not necessary to turn off the skimmer. Plz. post questions here if you have questions Bob

                    You're on the correct pathway--your description of the corals is also a good sign at this stage. The zeolite interval will extend to 6wks. from now on. Use the same quantity of stones & carbon. Dose bak/food 1 drop ea every other day for the 1st 2wks. then, 2x's/wk. Dose Start .1ml 2x's/day daily. Bob
