Sorry for the looses and thank you for the update.

To check the dosage can you please post the total net water volume of your system or is it still the same as in the first post of this thread ?

Your system might need some time now before you observe a decrease of nutrients. Basically your dosing regimen is OK, just dose ZeoStart 2 x daily instead of 2 x weekly. If you like to you can additional dose 6 drops BioMate very other day which should support processing nutrients.

ZeoVit quantity is measured in volume as the weight can differ. Right amount for your system would be 0.75 liters (3/4 bag). Reactor flow is ideal.

Hi g,I got my new t5 lamps coming soon 5 new generation 2blue 1 purple all kz lamps,just wondering is there a specific order I should put these into the fitting,eg,back of tank towards front of tank,my corals are sort off in middle of tank,hope that makes sense,tanks doing well have some new frags, po4 was creeping at 0.73 I will be receiving coral snow plus soon which could help lower po4,no3 is 0,Im thinking the no3,po4 balance is out but I will try coral snow plus see if that helps

Update,po4 has dropped it is now 0.012ppm I do notice that it does creep 0.031ppm I notice it doesnt seem stable no3 is undetectable,tank appears very clean with no algea present not even on snail shells,there is a brown type on small areas of sand,which I will syphon next water change.also skin mining a lot wetter than I normally do has helped
Alk.7.5-7.6 my salt is mixing up to around 7.55 Im trying to keep as stable as possible I thinking of changing less water going from 40ltr a week to 20ltr a week now that po4 has dropped.also calcium is high at 450 again down to the salt mix Im reluctant to change salt again.
Dosing
Zeobak 3drops 2 times weekly
Zeostart 0.30ml 2 times daily
Flat worm stop 2ml every other day
Cyno stop 3 drops 1 times weekly
Biomate 3drops 2times daily
Cv 3 drops every 2 days
Phols extra 2ml every other day
Coralsnow and kbalance when needed
Im still waiting on delivery of my kz t5 lamps so still running the leds,stupid question when the arrive do I burn them in on full power for 50hrs?the fitting is not above tank yet so I was going to burn them in then fit the fitting above tank

Sorry I have missed your question. I would lift up the fixture higher for the first 2 or 3 weeks before bringing it down slowly step by step if all goes well. I have never used any kind of “burn in time” for T5 so I would just use them as they are.

Avoid marin pure. I had it in my sump amd it leached all kind of stuff. Al, Si...etc it will give you troubles down the line. Also it break down when you start dosing zz.
Marine pure is not good with zeovit

Difficult to say, I never used the product so I can not give you a advice ?

Maybe someone else has already used it posting first hand experiences ?

Hi thought I should update no3 is 0 phosphate is still high 0.043 Ive been dosing biomate daily for 2 weeks no reduction in phosphates.im considering adding a small amount of phosphate absorber to see if it helps Im aware that rapid reduction could cause stn rtn but in a small amount it should be limited to how much it removes,any tips,only dosing basics at the moment
