Ordered pohls Xtra special and KZ amino acid concentrate. I'm going to stop nitrate dosing because I don't really see a difference after just over a week. Probably not long enough but I've been wanting to try the pohls Xtra special anyways.

How should I go about dosing considering I'm not using zeovit method?

A good start is 3 ml XTra and 3 drops AminoAcid 2 x weekly.

Difficult to say as dosing depends to many factors but I think 2 x weekly is a good start to observe the changes. If more often intervals do show additional improvements it can be dosed more often but it is basically better to start slow instead of overdosing at the start. Over the time you will get a better feeling to the product and its dosage.

A big factor for the dosing quantity is the quantity of consumers (corals), the skimmer, the growth rate of the corals etc.
