Hi Peter



Would recommend you like you have already mention to start as follows:

http://www.zeovit.com/forums/showpos...60&postcount=7

Use 1 liter ZeoVit with a constant water flow of ~ 400 liters per hour through the reactor.

Initial dosage:

ZEObak: 20 ml
ZEOstart: 40 ml
Sponge Power: 12 ml

On day 4 continue with:

ZEObak: 4 drops daily
ZEOstart: 0.4 ml 2 x daily
Sponge Power: 4 drops daily

…until day 14, than continue dosing as follows:


ZEObak: 4 drops 3 x weekly
ZEOstart: 0.4 ml 2 x daily
Sponge Power: 4 drops daily

Please keep in mind that your system will need much more time for the cycle which can be up to a couple of month as you just use dry rock.

A NO3 level of 2.5 mg is really not a issue, do not worry.

G.Alexander

Alexander,

Thanks for your reply, After 4 weeks of dosing (that one you recomen above). I need to change 90% ZEOlite. After change should I dose:
"On day 4 continue with:

ZEObak: 4 drops daily
ZEOstart: 0.4 ml 2 x daily
Sponge Power: 4 drops daily"

or just keep:
"ZEObak: 4 drops 3 x weekly
ZEOstart: 0.4 ml 2 x daily
Sponge Power: 4 drops daily"

Thanks

Continue dosing after the exchange as follows:

ZEObak: 4 drops daily for 10 days, than 2 x weekly
ZEOstart: 0.4 ml 2 x daily
Sponge Power: 4 drops daily

You can additional try to soak the zeovit material in RO water for 2 days before adding it to the reactor, replace the RO water one or two times per day.

Instead of 90% just replace 50% for the first time, 4 weeks later 90%.
