Default Settin up a nano tank whit zeovit...how much flow?

Hello, newbie here to the forum, and to zeovit in general.
I was planning to set up a small tank (60-70 L net volume)...as an AIO system or whit HOB equipment.
Of course the amount of products can be easily partitioned, as per zeovit instruction...water flow management will be more tough!
Does the flow have to be adjusted to the water volume or not?
I' was thinking to hold the zeolite either inside a media basket in one of the back chambers, or inside an internal/hob filter. This way the stones would be easy to shake, but the flow will always be around 300 L/hr...
Any advice will be really helpfull,

Although your flow is high it will not be a precise over the zeolites as a reactor this will counter the problems associated with fast flow. Take a look into this video I have linked a few members who are setting up nanos, it is 100% possible you just increase the attention to detail with dosing. Take a look into the Innovative marine media filter aswel this has been used to house zeolites aswel by many.

If you run the ZeoVit material in some kind of a tube or a filter flow should be adopted to the used zeovit quantity so for each 1 liter zeovit a maximum of 400 liters per hour. If you place the material in a basket hanging it in the sump flow is not that problematic as the water will not be active pressed through the material like a pump does. Personally I would give you the recommendation to use anything like a reactor with the recommended flow as the nutrient processing will be much more effective.

Thank you guys. I think i will go for an AIO tank....so zeolite either in a loose mesh bag or in a dedicated chamber/tube whit adjusted flow. Cool, some more stuff to DIY!!
