It does just contain less potassium so the dosage would be the same, the level will increase slower.

Hello Alexander,

The corals do respond on the K+ so that's a good thing. Now I have seen really tiny worms, don't know how to explain. The are so small that I can't take a picture of it, but they do look like this.
Can anybody help me?

There are two kind of snails know they eat Zoanthids while other eat the tissue of Montipora corals. Would recommend to check if it is any kind of them.

Hello Alexander,

I don't think they are snails, but they do eat my montipora and acropora corals. At night they are all over some corals and by day they are between my glass cleaner. These are the best pictures I could make.

Hello Jordi
Your tank is probably infested with montipora eating nudibranch. It is wery hard to get rid of them.
Sorry to see that.

Hi Jordi
It is really hard to give a good advice. I would Google it than you can identify your nudibranch with those on the pictures and then you may have a better idea. There plenty of info what others did.
All the best.

Hello,

I'll finally start with zeovit tomorrow. What if the zeolite is exposed to air when the reactor pump is off for the 3 hours? Do I need to adjust the flow to 50% and let the pump run all day?
I do need to run te zeolite for 4 weeks, after that do I need to change all of it or just a bit?

I did put a wrasse in the tank to see if he would eat the nudibranch and I think he does so that's a good thing.

Would recommend you to start as described over here:

http://www.zeovit.com/forums/showthread.php?t=34364

If the material is exposed to air if the reactor pump is switched off while the interval I would instead recommend to use the recommended quantity just use 50% of the recommended flow through the reactor for the first couple of weeks.

Hello Alexander,

I've been running zeolite for 2 days now and I have got lots of brown algae on the glass and rocks what I didn't have before, is this normal or what should I do?
My reactor is running on 50% so 160 liters per hour and 0.8 liters of zeolite

Hello Jordi, I expect you just dose ZeoBac and ZeoStart.

The brown stuff might be some diatoms, I would expect they get reduced / disappear within a couple of days.
