Default HI All new here, a few questions please

HI all.. I am not new to reef keeping , I have kept tanks for 15 years. I had a 265 gallon reef at one time but Long story short.. I had to take it down because of a move to take care of my ill mother.

So recently I set up a 75 gallon tank.. The kicker is.. I dont have a sump. I use live rock with skimmer for filtration and weekly water changes.

I have mainly polyps and mushrooms and a few acros.. Of course i want more but I have been adding slowly.

I used zeovit in my old system and would like to use it again. I dont think the reactor is going to work for me. Because I dont have a sump.

What product would work for me to help with coral growth and coloring?

Thank you for your help.

Please give us answers to the following questions in order to get more accurate dosing recommendations.

1. Gross water volume of your complete system (incl. sump etc.) - US gallons / UK gallons / liter. 75 gallons
2. Net water volume (incl. sump etc.) - US gallons / UK gallons / liter. Not sure . 65 - 70 gallons
3. Are you using a CaCO2 reactor or other technique . No
4. Are you using a PO4 reactor (how long, how long ago, etc.) No
5. Are you using Ozone. No
6. Are you using UV. No
7. What skimmer are you using (type, rated water volume) tank hang on. Back pack rated for 150 gallon

I know there are a lot of questions. Please be as detailed (and honest) as possible and feel free to elaborate on anything else you think may be important.

Thank you for the additional details. Basically you can use all the products without the complete system also but most of them give you the best results if the system runs nutrient poor stabile. You need to manage nutrients in a different way which does not have a negative impact to the corals.

The DeepSand bed is IMO not ideal also.

Here you can find a list of the different products with a short description:
