You can try to dose 18 ml Coral Snow mixed with 9 drops ZeoBac daily for 2 weeks because of the cyanos. While dosing this no additional ZeoBac dosage is necessary. Switch off the skimmer for 2 hours when possible while dosing the mixture. Please update after about one week if you the cyanos do decrease.

No special reason I know of however if they start to move around they are often damaged by pumps which can cause issues with more delicate corals.

So
Now I see Alot of pale brownish color GHA
My nitrates have stayed zero for a month now
But my phos is beginning to rise: 0.05 today used to be 0.01-0.03
Is it coz of low nitrate?
What do I do? Dose potassium nitrate?
Increase fish load?
More heavy feeding?

Can you please post your full dosing regimen and tell me how much zeovit material you have running ? Please also measure and post the flow of your zeovit reactor and tell me if you have running it with a interval or with continuous flow.

Do you keep any kind of herbivore already ?

G.Alexander


ZeoLite 2 liter stones
Flow 216 lit/hr continuous flow
Zeocarbon 1/2 liter
Zeostart 2 ml daily
Zeo sponge power 9 drops daily
Zeobac 9 drops every 3rd day


I have a 4" kole eye tang and she's grazing all day. Have many snails too
Total 8 fishes only: All are small
Have 32 Sps corals
Have algae now and
Phos slowly going higher 0.05
Nitrate 0 by Salifert

Do I add potassium nitrate ? Or do I increase feeding more or get more fishes so I can increase the nitrate and hence it will help decrease the phos?

I have never added potassium nitrate so I can not really give you a advise for it. Whatever you like to do I recommend to start very slow while observing the tank closely.

Additional you might temporary increase the ZeoVit quantity and the reactor flow to 2 liters material with 230 US gallons flow. This will not fix the problem but it might be a good additional support.

BioMate does have a positive impact to PO4 so adding 20 drops every other day is what I would try first for 2 weeks or so. The rest of your dosing regimen is OK.

Thanks for your advice.
I'll increase the zeolite stones a little maybe 2.5 liters and increase the flow too.
I'll be careful with the KNO3 dose and see if it helps at all.
I just ordered BioMate. Never used it, but I just read about it and it sounds like an interesting product.
Thank you.
Will keep posted
Have a good rest of the weekend!

Have some things going on that I don't understand
The corals are fading colors. And they now have bald patches on them!!!
I'm not sure what is going on.
My latest nitrate is 0 and phosphate is 0 too. Alk is 8.4 stable
I thought the lights were too much, so I raised the T5 2 " above but no changes
Worried I'm missing something
Does it have to do with lack of nutrition?

My dosing is same
Zeo start 2 ml daily
Zeosponge 9 drops daily and
Zeofood 9 drops every 3 days

Please suggest

I think I figured it out
I had automated the zeo start dosing.
So it seems like the timer malfunctioned
It dosed atleast 20 times more Zeostart than it should!!!!
This probably happened yesterday.


What can I do????

Just reduce the ZeoStart dosage to 25% for a couple of days than increase it to 50% for the next 10 – 14 days. Than you can start to dose it as usual again.

Before I got a reply from you, What I did was
I switched off the lights, put extra carbon, added some zeo amino acid and put in a lot of fish food. Hoping to increase the n/p a little.
Hoping that low nutrition caused some acros to bleach....

Do bleached acro ever come back?
Partially bleached?

What you think about what I did? Suggestions please

I'm happy to say that I did not have any single loss with the overdose of Carbon
The bleached corals are coming back with a bang
