Default 360g Sps change to full zeovit

Well I decide to go full zeovit to get my tank to the next leve of reefing. So far my growth has been great and color is nice and deep however I want to challenge my self to master the zeovit color. I got a great deal on a vibe zeovit reactor so here we go. I want to try for 6 months and then recap to see if the color and health improve or stay the same.
My dosing schedule
Zeobak 4 drops everyday
Zeostart3 3ml everyday
Zeolite 2l change every 6 weeks
Sponge power 10 drops MWF
Flatworm stop 10ml TThuSat
Pohl extra 10ml TThuSat
Coral snow plus 14ml Sun
Coral vitalizer MWF 10 drops.


Here is a brief video of my tank

I can see from your sand bed that the cyano has already started.
It can become a huge issue in a zeovit tank because the chemicals you add make bacteria grow.
I would double dose some snow now to kill it before it gets out of hand.

As for the colors with the amount of fish you have I think it is unlikely that you will get that washed out zeovit look.

Do you do ICP testing

I think there are a number of things you will need to dose

I
Mn
Ni
Zn
V

And things to watch out for include

The cyano come every 6 months but it never hurt my tank just 1 dose of chemiclean get rid of them. You are right about the zeo color I want to achieve will be hard for my tank since I have high nutrients with big bio load. The last icp test is about 2 months ago and everything looks good. I hope the pohl extra and the reducing of phosphate n nitrate will lighten up the color. My last resort is zeospur but not yet.

Honestly I dont see any problem with your corals colors. Corals on the reef are never pastel aside from a few types like Strawberry shortcake. I would concentrate on buying those corals rather then trying to put lipstick on a pig and convert corals that will never be pastel

I have been dosing zeobak zeostart3 sponge power flat worm stop Coral vitalizer for 18 months since I start the tank. Now I just add the reactor and the zeolite rock, pohl extra and the Coral snow plus try to reduce the nutrients and archive the lighter color.

Yeah they provide more slim coat and encourage the base to grow stronger most of my Sps have very strong growth at the base.

Hello ycnibrc, welcome to the zeovit forum

I watched your video and the coral is very beautiful. The pipeline is amazing and very high quality. I like it very much.

You can fill in the tank related information and tell us your tank.
