14. How long has the tank been running - Shifted from previous tank to 5 feet tank 3 months before.
15. Why do you want to use the ZEOvit system = to get good growth and coloration to SPS.
16. Any supplemental dosing (type, amount, why, etc.) - Using brightwell amino, Potassium, iron, boron & lugs iodine.
17. Live rock (how much, how old, etc.) - around 80kg
18. Any present problems = algae on glass i think due to high nitrate.
19. Problem description (tissue loss tips, tissue loss base, diatom bloom, algae, etc.)
20. What test kit do you use (how old, recently switched, etc.) - using salifert since long.
21. Present dosing, amounts and intervals (ZEOvit, ZEObak, ZEOfood, ZEOstart, ZEOspur2, etc.) - NONE
22. Other water parameters and water stability (salinity, temp, etc.) - Salinity 35ppt, temp 26 degree celsius.
23. Which salt brand do you use - have been using red sea normal salt since long. but there is stock available now so have have just purchased aqua forest sea salt.( not used yet).

First of all I would recommend to download the dosing guide from:

http://www.korallen-zucht.de/files/z..._english-1.pdf

It contains a lot of useful information and will be helpful to get a feeling for the dosage.

First start with the basics products to decrease nutrients:

1. Place 1 liter zeovit in a Zeo Reactor. Water flow around 400 liters per hour. Connect the reactor pump to a clock timer and run the reactor pump with a 3 hour on / 3 hour off / 3 hour on interval. Please make sure the zeolite is not exposed to air while the pump is switched off. Clean the material daily. Leave the zeolite 4 weeks in the filter until you do the first change out. This is the first changing interval, others could be lengthen to 6 – 8 weeks.

2. Place 0.4 liters activated carbon in a filter sock and keep it in a passive water flow in your sump, changed every 30 days. Knead the carbon daily to keep the surface clean. Most users get perfect results with korallenzucht carbon.

3. Dose 4 drops ZeoBac daily for the first 2 weeks, flowed by a 2 – 3 x weekly dosage of 4 drops. Dose 0.4 ml ZeoStart 2 x daily (morning & evening). Dose those in front of the Zeo reactor pump while it is switched on-

4. The additional dosage of SpongePower with 4 drops every other day would be OK alos, the rest of the products can be used later if the system runs nutrient poor stabile while corals are slowly getting lighter tissue. Also stop dosing the additional other products you already use.

Adjust your skimmer to skim wet, keeping it clean to export as much as possible. Do a weekly water change of 5 – 10 % with a good salt.

With the system it is not recommended to use a PO4 absorber. I would recommend to remove 1/3 of the absorber if you start with zeovit, than reduce the rest over the next 6 – 8 weeks step by step to zero. If this is done keep a eye on the PO4 level which should not increase.

Basic water parameters looking good, try to keep them as stabile as possible close the NSW in the following ranges:

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

For a nutrient poor environment K+ (potassium) seems to be a important element. I would recommend you to get a test kit for this element also, posting your results.

This is a start-up dosage which might have to be adjusted later.

You can use it later if you like to once the system is running nutrient poor stabile to fine tune coral coloration. AAHC does have a similar impact to the corals so you can also use it instead but both are basically different products.

400 liters per hour for each 1 liter zeovit material.
