Pleasure is all mine, 300 traffic means hourly. If there is something wrong, please forgive me more.

Lets keep the 3 hour on /off interval for the next 2 weeks after the ZeoVit exchanges. Than if your corals are doing fine you can switch the reactor to continues flow. This should be helpful with the NO3 level additional. As you already have BioMate you can dose 6 drops 2 x weekly additional. ZeoLive can be used later, you can dose it as recommended on the bottle 2 x weekly.

Hey G. Alexander, thanks again for all the help I have been dosing what you recommended but my NO3 are still the same how long will it take till I start to see a drop in NO3 or do I need to change how much I dose?

In the first page of this article #10# have said that if your zeolite amount / quantity / continuous flow, Zeo bac, Kz activated carbon use, skimmer is more wet, good. G. It is said that as long as the level of NO3 rises, you can reduce the dose from coloring and nutrients. If you take too much, you may encounter algae or cyanide.

I believe that the No3 level will decline over time. To support this process, it may be necessary to vacuum the sand each time the water is changed to remove deposits from the deeper sand.

Also need your current, all usage, zeolite potions, etc. Give G. diagnosis.

Your dosing plan is very good. It has been a while since the last time. What makes me wonder why there is No3. So what is your NO3 level? Where do you think NO3 comes from? Wait for G. Suggestions (this is worth learning)

Hi I am using the Salifert Nitrate test kit my readings are 15mg. I have cleaned the sand bed but was also thinking of taking out half of the sand and do front part of the tank bare and the back with sand just to cut back on NO3.

Perfect and correct, maybe this is why NO3 is here. You can also use Zeo Coral Snow to keep your water body clear, reduce "organic matter" and transport nutrients.

Reducing "organic matter" also reduces "inorganic salts"

Bringing down NO3 is a longer process usually so no worry. I would recommend you to continue as planned. You can additional vacuum the sand while each water change to remove the sediments from the deeper sand layers. This might speed up the process a little bit.

Also adjusting the skimmer to skim more wet cleaning it daily does support this process.

Please also measure the reactor flow if it is to low. Collect the water from the reactor outlet for 30 seconds with a small container. Multiply its volume by 120 and you will get the output per hour.

Hey guys sorry for the late reply. I get 14 gallons in 30 seconds and that brings me to a water flow of 120 14 = 1680 gallons a hour.

Not sure about your measurement, reactor flow should be ~ 300 liters per hour for your system size.
