  • My home Reef Zeovit setup

    Hi.
    I am reefer for nice couple years, but it is my first tank which I would like to run with Zeovit method.
    I have started the tank 11 weeks ago with 14 days cycling method ( zeobak, zeostart and sponge power)
    There are about 30 frags of SPS , few LPS on the booton and fw fish.
    Tank is running on dry rock .
    I will look for advices and help from the forum side, as I am totally new to this method.
    Thank you

    Welcome to ZeoVit.com !

    At the moment I would recommend you to stay with the basics, the system is still very young and as you have used just dry rock the cycle will still need additional time. At the moment I would not add additional fish as the processes to process nutrients are not really strong at this stage. This will prevent a increase of nutrients.

    If you like to you can post some more details about your system:

        Thank you for the additional details, looking good.

        Your dosing regimen sounds good, also nutrient concentrations are low already which is basically a good sign.

        At the moment I would recommend to stay with those thee products.

        Do the corals you already have in the system started to grow already ?

          Thank you so much for advices.

          Yes, I think corals are started growing, beacuse alkanity a little dropping everyday.

          G.Alexander, what would you recomende to buy for future to keep corals and system healthy? I want use Coral System in future , but what can I use with it to keep my tank clean and corals healthy?
          I am asking because is a good offer for Korallen Zucht products in one of the shop, and I want to buy now whatever I should I use in future.

          Thank you

            My experience with the Coral System is limited however some additional products you can use are BioMate, CoralSnow, CoralVitalizer, SpongePower and ZeoZym. They all have a positive impact to the biology except CoralVitalizer which is a excellent food source for the corals.

              Thank you so much. I will get them and try to use in future when system will be ready for it.

              Should I still dosing Zeobak and Zeostart in future, or not?

                I would personally do as it does improve the systems biology, a component which is not a part of the CoralSystem.
