Why did you choose to run ZEOvit?

and after researching zeovit forums I decided to give it a go



Have you used any other filtration methods before ZEOvit?
Seachem Reef products with prodibio

The use of bacterias (Bak and Bio-mate) to keep it clean
also removing PO4 and colours

I pause dosing keeping only start3 auto at reduce dosing

e.g. do you notice improved blue colours dosing pif better pinks with k+
I’m still learning the effects and trying to balance
as all corals react different to dosing, but must say Coral vitaliser is my favourite for colour,
B balance follow up and spur-2 next



Bulbs configuration, why did you choose this set of tubes?
ATI bulbs

2 coral +
1 purple +
After researching various configuration I decided this is the best for viewing at naked eye

Congratulations!

True ZEOvit reef Wonderful

Can you tell me if you use ZEOspur2 at all, and is 0.04mL x 2 of ZEOstart3 daily a misprint, can you confirm your ZS3 dose daily?

Many thanks .

Awesome Zeovit tank! The balance of colour saturation is what I am really happy to see. Not like the really pale Zeo colours.

Would like to know how much ZeSpur2 and Zeostart you use daily. Thanks.

Stunning tank and coral colours!! I have thought of using NSW my self as i have sea close by but have always been worried to do so. Have you been using sea water for a long time with no negative effects?? Always thought i would be unlucky and collect dirty water and crash my tank. If its a good idea to use sea water please give me some advise on how you do it as it would save me sone cash on salt mix, thanks!!

Hi Cristine,
I dose start3 diluted 20:1 with dosing pump at 9ml twice a day so will be more like 0,045ml twice a day. Spur i only dose 4 times december and first week of january and since then i stop because some corals are too pale
