Don't thank you, find out the problem and correct it immediately.

According to G, Alexander's suggestion to complete it, right, remember the coral snow, look at the coral reaction and come back to consult G.

It is also a good idea to calibrate your feeder before starting to use RODI water. This will avoid wasting the ZeoStart3 solution and risking excessive use of the fuel tank. For dose accuracy, the dose should be calibrated and tested frequently.

The goal is not to introduce bacteria into your solution, which will cause contamination because the bacteria will be taken from the solution and will increase over time. This usually causes the solution to become cloudy. To avoid this, I recommend following the steps below as much as possible.

You will need a container to hold the sealed solution and can withstand temperature sterilization, usually with good glass.

Cook some RODI water and clean the inside of the container, the lid and all the pipes (used to pump the solution into the feeder and tank). Discard this water, do not dry it with a cloth, and do not touch any surfaces to contact the solution. Place the item on a clean or sterile surface to cool naturally.

Bring the required RODI water for your solution. Once at the boiling point, it is removed from the heat and allowed to cool naturally. This may take some time, so you can speed up the process by placing the boiling container in an ice bath (make sure it doesn't pollute your boiling water during this process). You should also cover the water to avoid the so-called "bacterial rain", which is the bacteria in the air that will fall to the surface and contaminate it. It is best to complete the cooling in 30 minutes to reduce the chance of pollution.

Pour the cooled and measured amount of RODI water into your metering container.

A measured amount of ZeoStart3 was added to the RODI water.

The lid and tube were placed on a metering container and the solution was spun for 60 seconds to allow mixing. You can now connect the solution bottle to the metering pump. Adjust the metering pump and deliver the required amount of ZeoStart3 solution twice a day. You can also take it 4 times a day, but considering the use of smaller doses, the accuracy of the dose will be reduced. Most dosers have a dose of at least 1 mL, so consider this when planning your dose and frequency.

The solution will remain mixed without future or continuous mixing. If you have questions, you can rotate it once a week.

Some pharmacies or hospitals have medical grade clean and sterile empty barrels or glass bottles. Maybe it's good, you can look for it.

You can find the right volume container by google it.

I would personally use glass if possible, this is 100% save, alternatively one empty blue bottle from korallenzucht.

For a net water volume of 800 liters and the actual water parameters your dosing regimen sounds good to me. If you like to add ZeoZym to it you can dose 1 heaped spoon 1 2 x weekly additional.

After each ZeoVit exchange dose ZeoBac daily for 10 days.

I have also dosed ZeoStart with a dosing pump but never had accident like you have described. I have just added enough ZeoStart to the dosing system for a maximum of 2 weeks to prevent such accidents as delicate corals can be damaged from such a huge quantity.
