You might try to dose a mixture of CoralSnow and ZeoBac (2 ml CS + 1 drop Bac / 25 US gallons) daily. Might be worth a try.

Frays,

How you dosing Coral Snow? 8ml + 1 or 4 drops of Zeobac?

I just thinking to start CS as well. My Nitrites is almost not detectable. NO3 staying on 20ppm, for now is ok. PO4 tonight is 32, so big proggres.
I put 2 Turbo snails, 2 shrimps (cleaner and fire) 2 red leg crabs.
Snails ok, shrimps ok too. Crabs difficult to find them
How is your tank now?

Glad to hear you have some livestock and they are healthy that's fantastic!!
I've been running CS 8ml+4 drops Zeobak, water is crystal clear and the NO3 is coming down it's just such a slow process with zeovit system. I have a lot of brown algae on my sand bed flow at 35X hopefully will go when NO3 drops off(currently running some Phosguard on low dosage)
Tank update
NO3 10PPM
PO4 0.01
Cal 350
DKH 8.2
Mag 1360
PH 8.2
Dosage: ZStart 0.25ml x2, Zeobak 4drops, Spower 4drops daily, Csnow 8ml (lower Zstart to combat diatoms for now)
Additions
Cleaner shrimp
Emerald crab
4 new SPS

Quick snap of my neon Seriatopora polp extension getting better

Nice coral pic
SO if you adding ZeoBac to COral Snow you not dose separatley ZeoBac.
What you do with days where you shudn't dose ZeoBac?
after change ZeoLites you have to dose ZeoBac daily for about 10 days, but after 10 days you should dose 3 times week, in that time are you still adding ZeoBac to Coral Snow?
Do you know what I mean?
And do you mix Coral Snow with ZeoBac in a cup or just adding both same time to sump?

I'm running PO4 absorber as well of low range. BTW, Korallen Zucht offering they own PO4 absorber, so it is safe to use in some situations, but manual say NO...

I run the CS and ZB daily only don't add extra ZB just the 4 drops during the 10 day change I wasn't running CS. I usually only dose Zbak Tuesday and Friday I may increase to 3x but I'm finding Zstart and the Zbak increase my brown film :/ Corals looking fab yeah more pics to follow tank lights turned off last night as I was filming lol

Quick update
Will be installing a second DI-resin pod to my RO unit and will reduce my Kessil lighting to battle the brown film. Hopefully I can find time to drill into my storeroom to add the plumbing station #nomorebrown

-Added 100 micron felt bags these polish the water so well, need cleaning daily though.
-Yellow tang has taken dominanace of the tank now, such a bully ha.

Amendments to above:
3 months old
Nitrates at 2.5ppm now

Alexander would you recommend anything or just keep dosing as above, my corals look healthy but appear to have minimal growth some white around my Monti. My anemone is loving the tank though I've run out of Potassium tests if it's going down what do you recommend I dose to bring it up?

K+ level is low, does have a negative impact to growth and might also be the reason form the issue with the montipora.
