Ok thank you. When I read the instructions it said teaspoon so thought it was a measurement teaspoon. Going forward will use the spoon in the jar. It is a level one so will just scrap the excess off.

4 drops daily zeo bak daily
4 drops sponge power. (Every other day)
.8ml zeostart daily
4ml Pohls extra special (Monday and Thursday)
I did not use the snow and cyano drops this week.

Question for you on the zeozyn. I used a measuring teaspoon for the measurement before noticing the one that came with it. Does it matter?

Before weekly water change and starting the new treatment with the new products.

Alk = 6.7 dosing 6ml
Call = 450 dosing 10ml
Mag = 1440 dosing off
Nitrate = 2
Phos = 108 Hanna checker (ordering Salifert this week. Not sure if this is correct or not)

things looking good except the PO4. is your test kit ppm or ppb? meaning is it the normal po4 checker or the ultra low range checker? we really need to understand your true PO4 values to avoid doing aggressive PO4 reduction just to realize that we reached zero which will bring some cyano issues if that occurred. your NO3 is low which make me more suspect your PO4 values

OMG man your readings are ppb (part per billion) not PPM (part per million) )your PO4 is not bad:
38ppbX3.066/1000=0.116ppm. your target is 0.08~0.04ppm. so you are getting close "IF" this is correct reading.
lets keep your dosing and reduce your PO4 to that range..

Corals look ok. Not seeing big growth but knock on wood nothing is dying.

See green algae. However have turbo snails, emerald crabs, Halloween urchin, and sea hare.... cyano seems ok right now. Touch wood....

I am ordering the salifert phos tester this week to help double check the Hanna. Give us 2 sources for this....

Sorry one more thing. Tuesday I plan on doing the zeozym and bio mate treatment. Should I be doing the zeo snow and zeo cyano drops every day during the day? Honestly have not used it since before the chemiclean treatment awhile ago. Was not sure how to factor into the plan right now.

for now keep the CS+CC every other day it will not hurt. this will keep cyano away during this critical phase of correcting your parameters. but make sure you do that during day, while ZZ+BM during night. meaning prepare the ZZ+BM in the morning, keep it ferment so you add the mixture to your tank after lights off.
