Started the Zeovit today. My dosing today was...
Zeobak 5ml
Zeostart 10ml
Sponge power 3ml
I will continue the dosing as per the 14 day cycle. I will continue to post updates. Since I do not have live rock or sand in my tank, how long should I wait till adding the first fish or coral?

I posted a picture of day 1, can't wait to see the progress.

Today I am on day 10 of the Zeovit cycle. I have read that since I didn't use live rock and I don't have sand I have to wait longer before I add my first livestock. How much longer should I wait? I did my test and these were the results...

Salinity 1.024
PO4-0
NO4-01
Alk-9.3
Cal-582

Going to redo the calcium later, it seems high. Also when should I do my first water change?

Have you use a high sensitive test for PO4 or a photometer ? Please also check the NO3 level.

Do you get any kind of algae already ?

There is no algea, tank looks the same as day one. Sorry about the typo. It should say NO3 not NO4. The test kit I use for phosphate is the Hanna Checker. Light where running 12 hours and I just put them down to 10 hours yesterday.

You might try to add the first not to delicate test corals now, if algae start to grow next step would be adding some herbivore like snails. At this stage you will not be able to get all out of the corals as the biology is still building up which is a important factor. If all goes well you can add the first small fish.

So a little update. Added my first fish yesterday. I am taking it slow since I am quarantine everything even the coral. I have a couple of questions. I haven't added carbon yet. I would like to add it now since I put my first fish in. How much should I use? My next question is when should I change out the Zeovit media for the first time? I am on day 25 with the Zeovit. Any help would be appreciated.

For a total net water volume place 100 ml carbon in a mash bag and place it in your sump. Replace the carbon every 30 days and knead it daily to prevent channels.

If the first 4 weeks have passed replace ~ 50% of the material. Dose ZeoBac daily after each exchange for 10 days.

Next exchange would be 4 weeks later, than replace 90% of the material. Additional changing intervals can be lengthen to 6 8 weeks depending to the nutrient concentrations of your system.
