Default Spongepower

How come the new dose for spongepower has changed from everyday to every other day? Is this better?

I also want to know that most successful successful tanks use spond power for a large number of times. Why is that? I read Alexander's beautiful tank Alexander using 5 ml once a week. Why is this? Instead of the number of drops

Basically the manufacturers recommendations are general which do work for most systems but there are differences and under several circumstances better results can be reached if more or less is dosed. The only parameter are the corals and the overdosing signs. I have never used a fixed dosage I always dosed base on the look of the corals. Personally I had better results with the once per week high dosage than with a daily dosage in my reef but this can differ from system to system.

"I always do it based on the appearance of the coral. For me personally, a weekly high dose is better than my daily dose on a coral reef." Asked by experienced Alexander sponge power about how your coral looks. Coral appearance

Thanks el zurdo, there is not much unusual I do. Daily maintenance is cleaning the skimmer and dosing, also pumping the zeolite. As in my old tank I measure KH 2 x weekly to make sure the level stays stabile. Water changes is done every 3 weeks using RBS at the moment by 10 %.

Dosage vary but basically this is what I use at the moment:

12 drops Bac 2 x weekly
0.6 0.8 ml Start2 daily
12 drops Iodine Complex 2 x weekly
3~ 3 ml XTra daily
1 heaped teaspoon zeozym 1 x weekly
10 ml coral snow 1 2 x weekly
5 drops coral Vitalizer every other day
2 drops AminoAcid ever other day
8 ml ZeoSpur2 1 x weekly
5 ml B-Balance mixed with 5 drops Sponge Power every other day
