Water changes should usually not cause issues while the treatment as long as the quality of your RO water and salt is fine.

How massive are those cyanos, are just some areas affected or did this spread over the whole tank ?

Can you please check the quality of your RO water with a accurate TDS meter ?

When exactly have you done the first ZeoVit exchange and do you still have running the ZeoVit reactor with the 3 hour on / off modus ?

Hi.
My water osmosis seems to be good (ati lab test) and the tds meter measures are zero. There is some algae mostly little bubbles on the walls and the some stones.
I changed zeovit one month ago. And it runs permanently.

Have you already tried to remove them manually or vacuum them while a water change ? Do they grow back again at the same places ? Can you post a picture of them ?

Please also post your actual full dosing regimen.

My actual dosing : zeolit 1,5 l running permanently.
Zeostart 6 drops/day

Looks like some kind of higher algae to me, they often grow on coralline algae. Try to scrub off the coralline algae on the glass also. Some herbivore like snails should be helpful additional. If you have CoralSnow already you can additional dose 2 ml / 25 US gallons 2 x weekly for some time to support the process.

Looks like your ZeoStart dosage is very small, should be 0.6 ml 2 x daily usually. What is the actual PO4 and NO3 level ?

Bonsoir and thanks you for all your advice. I have coral snow plus. So I can use it.
For zeostart dosing I made a mistake. I put 0,6 ml twice a day. Last test : NO3 0.6 PO4 0.7 mg/l. How can I lower po4 level?

Can you please measure the reactor flow by collecting the water from the reactor outlet for 30 seconds. Multiply the water volume with 120 and you will get the exact output per hour. Should be ~ 600 liters per hour.

Hello. I changed the pump the flow was too low (300 l/h). I replaced the pump of the reactor by a more powerful then I hope to lower the phosphates. Should I continue the water changes?

The weekly water changes are a way to refresh consumed / exported elements in a balanced way so I would recommend to continue with a weekly water change of 10% using a well balanced salt.

Hello. I m pretty happy. My po4 rate is 0,01 mg/l. No3 0.5 mg/l and all the other indicators are good. I have increased the flow of the zeovit reactor it runs permanently. I put 0.5 ml of zeostart twice a day. 6 drops of zeoback 2 times a week. Kz activated carbon. Water changes 10% every week. But I still have algae (dino?)
At this point should I feed the corals? What should I add?
Thanks in advance.
JF

It really depends to the look of the corals, if they do show good growth and polyp expansion also if the tissue is not becoming to light I would keep the dosage as it is at the moment.
