I am sorry I do not see any kind of a problem nor would I recommend to use a higher flow for the reactor thank recommended. PO4 is perfect already and as mention in post 53 a NO3 level of 2.5 does not have any kind of a negative impact. Only thing to fix are the cyanos but you already have started to treat them, give it some time.

For a net water volume of 600 liters 0.6 ml would be the right amount, anyways you might be able to lower the quantity a little bit if PO4 does stay at zero stabile. If you like to give it a try do reduce the quantity in small steps to 0.4 ml 2 x daily for example while keeping a close eye on the PO4 level which should not increase.

Sorry, missed to mention, 0.6 ml 2 x daily so 1.2 ml total per day.

You can lower the dosage in steps over a couple of weeks but I would not dose less than 0.3 ml 2 x daily. 0.5 ml 2 x daily would be a good start.

It can have several reasons, it can also be caused by algae or Dinoflaggelate but basically also to much ZeoStart. What is your actual dosing regimen ?

I think it has something to do with the cyano treatment especially with the relative high dosage of ZeoBac and ZeoZym. Once the treatment has ended the bubbles should start to decrease again.

Do the cyanos have started to decrease since you use the treatment ?

When have you started with the treatment ?
