Default Questions on cycling the tank with zeovit

Tank info

1. Gross water volume of your complete system (incl. sump etc.) - US gallons / UK gallons / liter
2. Net water volume (incl. sump etc.) - US gallons / UK gallons / liter
~800-840l of water
3. Are you using a CaCO2 reactor or other technique
4. Are you using a PO4 reactor (how long, how long ago, etc.)
5. Are you using Ozone
6. Are you using UV
7. What skimmer are you using (type, rated water volume)
Nyos quantum 220 (rated for 500-2000l)
8. What are your actual PO4 and NO3 levels
have not tested yet
9. What are your actual Ca, Alk and Mg levels
Ca 430, Alk 7.6, Mg 1350, K 410
10. What filtration method do you use (refugium, DSB, Miracle Mud, etc.)
None Just skimmer and ~30-40kg of quality liverock in the tank with 8 bags of KZ Coral sand Aragonite 3-5 mm (36,8kg)
11. Type of light (Watt, color temp, how old, etc.)
2x Giesemann Vervve 160/180W for main display
2x Maxspect razor 120w 16000k for fragtank
12. What corals do you keep
Mostly SPS with few LPS and hopefully with no softies
13. Tissue color (light or dark)
14. How long has the tank been running
7 days
15. Why do you want to use the ZEOvit system
Found it extreamly efficent and easy to manage.
16. Any supplemental dosing (type, amount, why, etc.)
none for now
17. Live rock (how much, how old, etc.)
~30-40kg of premium liverock (new)
18. Any present problems
brown algae film on sandbed and few rocks, should be going away soon.
19. Problem description (tissue loss tips, tissue loss base, diatom bloom, algae, etc.)
20. What test kit do you use (how old, recently switched, etc.)
royal nature/Salifert relatively new.
21. Present dosing, amounts and intervals (ZEOvit, ZEObak, ZEOfood, ZEOstart, ZEOspur2, etc.)
14 day cycle going on day 8
22. Other water parameters and water stability (salinity, temp, etc.)
salinity 1.026 (35,5PPT), tank temp around 25,5 with +-0,5 swing during the day/night schedule
23. Which salt brand do you use
Royal Nature Ion balanced Pro salt
Thinking of switching back to Reefers best.

Upgraded my tank (Actually have both running now seperately) to system size of 1100l where there is around 800l of water and started the 14day cycle with protein skimmer, zeovit reactor (with 2000ml of zeovit)
day 1 80ml of zeostart3, 40ml zeobak, and 24ml of Sponge power.
days 2 and 3 had a break
day 4-7 now done with 8 drops of bak and spongepower, and total of 1,6ml zeostart3 divided in two doses of 0,8ml daily.

I am getting abit of detritius from the high quality liverock i used to start the tank, is it ok for me to do a waterchange and syphon some of the sand and rocks or should i not touch the tank untill the full 14day cycle is done?

Allso i got quite a few corals in the tank that came with the rocks, seem to be doing fine at the moment (mostly softies with few montipora etc. nothing really delicate) and the rock has different types of algae allready attached to them tought not to scrape them from the rock to give a hiding place for pods etc. Should i start dosing Ca and Alk if the parameters dip before 14day mark?

You can remove the mulm but do not change to much water at this stage. You can dose a Ca and KH supplement if necessary while the cycle to keep the levels within the recommended ranges.

Run the reactor with continuous flow from the beginning.
