Default New Tank can I start Zeovit?

Hi Everyone

I have a new 110 gallon tank that just finished cycling ( not using Zeovit ).

I just came around to find out about this product. I currently don’t have any fish or corals but will be adding them shortly. When would be the best time to add the Zeovit system?

I did use live sand initially I read that you shouldn’t if cycling with Zeovit. Since I didn’t and I start running Zeovit will this cause any issues?

Hi ibrat82



Please post some more details about your system:

Many had issues with the combination of live sand and ZeoVit getting constant algae or cyano. If you really plan to run the system with ZeoVit I would remove the live sand and replace it with a shallow sand bed of dry aragonite in a grain size of 2 – 4 mm. Soak the fresh material well in RO water before using it. After the sand is replaced I would start the cycle as follows:

While no animals are in the system.

When you refer to live sand are you referring to the live sand products sold at Lfs or a live sand bed? Because I only have about 1” Of dead aragonite /live Fiji pink sand mix

Might be a dumb question but just want to be sure

I was talking about the live sand which you can get in ready packed bags in the local fish stores.

If you like to you can give it a try with the sand you already have but if you get issues with algae/cyanos constantly you might replace the sand later to get rid of them.
