All is looking good, the zeovit quantity is a little bit to high but at the moment this will not cause issues. I would personally additional dose SpongePower.

If the first 2 weeks have passed continue dosing as follows:

ZeoBac – 13 drops 3 x weekly
ZeoStart – 0.13 ml 2 x daily
SpongePower – 13 drops every other day

There is no amonia I added a green slimmer Stag corals and its doing fine also added 1 liter of carbon in a passive area of my sump what else should I do now is it good to add more corals I never saw my amonia spike up and I have all those fish there for about almost three weeks ? What’s the next step

If the first 4 weeks have passed replace 50% of the ZeoVit material, after the exchange dose ZeoBac daily for 10 days, ZeoStart 2 x daily and SpongePower every other day.

Than continue dosing as follows:

ZeoBac – 13 drops 2-3 x weekly
ZeoStart – 0.13 ml 2 x daily
SpongePower – 13 drops every other day

Than I would slowly start to stock the system with additional corals step by step and see how they are doing.

Did you test your NO3 and Po4? You put a fish in without checking it?
What did you check before puting a fish so you know it's safe for them?
