Steven, how much Zeovit material do you have in your reactor and what exactly is the reactor flow ? You can easy measure it by collecting the water from the water outlet for 30 seconds with a separate container. Multiply its volume by 120 and you will get the output per hour.

Please also check the potassium level and post your test result.

Was this a fresh system ? Have you cycled it with the Zeovit 14 day cycle method 35 days ago ?

Hi Alexander! Happy that you have replied my questions, according your advice, my testing result for Zeovit is 345g, 30s water is 998g, types 120, one hour is 119.760g water.
K resting result is 250. My zeo system is using living stone cylinder. We followed the official instruction 14 days open tank methods, however we've found algae on the stone, how to solve the algae on stone problem? So carol could grow up faster and more colorful?

I am not sure with the ZeoVit quantity you use. As it is a natural material the weight can differ so usually the volume is measured. In your case it would be .0.25 liters or 250 ml. Reactor flow is a little bit fine but I would not expect any issues from it.

You need to slowly increase the K+ level to ~ 380 mg. I have used K-Balance Strong for this which I do recommend you also. The dry coral tissue you have described can be a result of the low level. I would also recommend to measure the K+ level or your salt to make sure that this is not the reason for the low level.

The system is still new and still cycling so some algae here and there are common at this stage. You can remove it regular or add additional herbivore like a urchin,

Thanks Alexander, I'll increase the K+ level to 380 slowly. Another question for the potion, I have purchased CV,AA,XTAR,SNOW potion, are those potion ok to use in tank? If yes, how many quantity should I add? Or do you have others recommended potion?

The ZEOvit phase depends on the level of nutrition and the appearance of the coral. The nutrient composition is relatively high [with the "pooling reserve"] and the color of the coral is dull. Polyp extensions may or may not exist.

Consider the start of the Stage 1 ZEOvit method. Basic 4 is used to reduce nutrients in a balanced manner. With the consumption of nutrients and "reserves", the corals become brighter, the appearance is lighter, and the dose of corn becomes less. First stabilize the first stage of the solid foundation, if you can control np then it is not a problem, if you can not control np then just feed algae. It is recommended to follow the steps slowly. Read the basic message (FAQ) on the web page.

The k+ boost needs to be slow because it is too fast to make the coral uncomfortable to cause stress, which is like kh, including the sudden sharp increase and decrease of any element. Also includes SG. Coral display stn rtn

For the use of the kz system, the recommended kh is 6.5~7.5. The amount of water is about 100L. It is not easy to control, but it is right to relax. We like the sea and enjoy it. What spectrum does the Ati t5 lamp use? Do you have more pictures? Is the water flowing between live rock?

I would first try to bring up the K+ level slowly before using additional products. If the level is ~ 380 mg stabile you can slowly start to add other products to improve corals coloration slowly as long as you do not have algae or cyano issues.

The water quality is a bit thin, and if the basic water parameters are within the recommended range, more corals can now be added to the system. Additional fish can be added but should be very slow. At this stage, fish feeding must also be carried out with great care because the biology is not very stable at this stage. Do not add more than 1-2 fish per week to 250 liters per week. Also check the k+ level 380. If you can control np then add some food and color agents at the right time.

My 3 ATI T5 lamp is 3 of Blue plus, 1 of Aquablue special, 1 of ATI coral plus and 1 of purple plus. Yes, the water flowing better live rock.

I don't have good experience with the light spectrum, maybe white light led blue auxiliary light will be good, G. may have better suggestions. It is also recommended that you add 1 fish to make the system have a loop.

I see it as Jacky, your lighting spectrum is to blue to get intensive coloration.
