I am not sure which kind of role those elements play if it comes to LPS corals but SPS corals are much more sensitive to such things that is why I do not think that it is the reason for the problem.

Can you tell me how much zeovit material you use exactly and what exactly the flow through the reactor is (measured) ?

Also are basically all kind of LPS corals affected or just a couple ?

I use 1L of Zeovit in a zeovit reactor. I figured it's been a while since I've exchanged (2+ months) so I just exchanged .5L and I'm dosing .5ml zeostart 2x daily, and on my 3rd day of 10 drops Zeobak (120g)for 10 days. As far as flow through reactor, I will have to check after work, but I do believe valve is half open.

STN started with my Wilsoni corals, then it took out my Acans. Then moved to my Chalices. It has already taken out a Miami Hurricane, red with yellow rim, and half of my bubble gum chalice (pic attached) that was the size of a canelope. Also my Galaxia is 90% dead. My frog spawn and neon trumpet have lost 2 heads each. I check for preditors daily in the middle of night and I see nothing.

Looking forward to the measured reactor flow. You have also mention that you use UV which is not compatible to the system. For a net water volume of 110 US gallons your dosage is to high, recommend to continue as follows:

4 drops ZeoBac daily for 10 days, than 4 drops 2 x weekly
0.4 ml ZeoStart 2 x daily

You have also mention that you had issues with Dinos, have you treated them in any way ?

Have you already tried to adjust your skimmer to skim more dry for some time ?

Might the LPS corals do get to much light ?

For the dinos, I have tried many options. There is a very detailed thread on reef 2 reef over 200 pages that is making progress on defeating them. One of which is using a UV. This has only been installed for 2 weeks. My problems have existed for 8 months. And I actually have it only turned on at night when the dinos are in the water column. When I dose Zeobak, the light are off. I am showing progress against the dinos since installing. I've also tried H202, Cheato, and lights out for many days, none of which truly worked. Dinos thrive off of ULNS.

I will adjust dosing. Total volume is closer to 120g if you include sump.

Yes, skimmer is skimming dry. Very dark green skimmate after a few days. I've also been dosing phyto directly to corals and I see little progress with feeders coming out.

Lighting is not a factor. I've replaced bulbs and moved many locations in the past.
