A short question with the possibility to answer it writing a book about this topic

Can you tell me something more about the corals you keep also a full tank shot to give us a idea about the coral stocking level would be good.

I just bought 5 small SPS frags 2-3 weeks ago & assume they are still adapting. The rest of the tank consists of Zoas Palys, Candy Cane, Mushrooms, BTA. they were growing when NO3 PO4 were at higher levels before I started Zeo method at the end of April. Since switching over to ULNS everything has literally stopped growing. I have thinned everything considerably to make room for SPS & LPS.
I will post tank shots below

They are growing when NO3 PO4 is at a higher level. I can't see the signs of sps growth in the picture. Coral growth is not absolutely related to nutrient salt. I think it is more directly related to zooxanthellae.

Thank you for the pictures, can you please post your full actual dosing regimen and the following actual water parameters:

PO4
NO3
K+
Ca
KH

Not sure if you have kept SPS corals before starting with ZeoVit but if so would you say that their growth has also decreased since using ZeoVit ?

G.Alexander
PO4-0 Hanna Nyos-0
NO3-0 Salifert
K+-380 Salifert
Ca-450 Salifert
KH-8 Hanna Salifert-8.3

the SPS pictures are the first Ive had, they are about 3 weeks in the DT
The rest (Zoas Palys Mushrooms Hammers Elegance & such Ive had for much longer. None has any growth to speak of since I started with Zeovit & brought NO3 & PO4 down to the undetectable levels. Is this a adaptation period? I dont know but would suspect it may play a role. Before SPS & Zeovit NO3 was always kept around 5-10ppm & PO4 2-5ppm.
thank u for taking the time

for dosing all I do is .5ml x 2 zeostart & 5 drops zeobak every 3 days.
1.2 litre zeolite at 120-130 gph flow. when I change zeolite (around 6 weeks) I dose 5 drops zeobak everyday for 10 days & .5ml zeostart x 2
I use coralsnow with 5 drops zeobak when DT needs it, usually around the time that zeolites need to be changed. I use 1/2 cup activated carbon (Rox 0.8) in passive flow in the sump & change it every 30 days. I was using Chemi Pure Elite Carbon but found it to have too much fines so I changed to Rox 0.8 about 6 weeks ago. I change 10g water weekly mixed to 1.025.
I log all my water testing since February 2018
I have on hand the following zeo products: Zeobak, Zeostart, K+ Strong, Biomate, CyanoClean, Sponge Power, Zeofood 7, Amino Acid LPS, B-Balance, Xtra special, ZeoZym
