Welcome to Zeovit.

I would recommend you have a read of these articles I started my system from these 2 its just a case of sitting down and working all the dosing out drawing a plan and sticking to it.

The second webpage -Section7- provides you with a setup to follow make sure to read this and prepare.

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

until day 14, than continue dosing as follows:

If it is a system without animals started from the scratch I would recommend to start as follows as Fray has mention already:

After the initial dosage you can continue as Peter has mention.

there should be 100 gallons per hour flow through the reactor per liter of ZeoVit media? How much ZeoStart per day for 2 liters of zeovit media.

0.75 ml 2 x daily, net water volume of the completely system is the base of the calculation.

Those are ~ 760 liters so 0.75 ml ZeoStart 2 x daily is the necessary dosage for your system.

Usually you can switch to continuous flow about 2 weeks after the first ZeoVit exchange if all corals are doing fine.
