Mg 1250 1300 mg
K+ ~ 380 mg

Bringing back the balance with a balanced salt mix having those levels within the above ranges is would I would do by doing water changes.

Can you tell us something more about your system especially how it has worked before you have started to use ZeoVit ? Have you had those problems before ? When do you started with the ZeoVit system at this tank ?

Because oft the TN starting at the tips do you have increased the potassium level recently to quick ?

It would also be interesting to know how much ZeoVit material you are using in the reactor.

Thank you
i have no alk or ca consumption yet how would you go about lowering it?
I have 1400 grams of zeolite media in the reactor and 2 cups of carbon
I added 6 grams of pure potassium in RODI water by reef flowers yesterday that should raise by 30 ppm I noticed straight away extreme polyp extension
My tds is at 1 ppm I think I will do better testing today and give you the results
