I have personally used those T5s for my system:

https://www.korallen-zucht.de/en/Sal...tion-39-W.html

https://www.korallen-zucht.de/en/Sal...rple-39-W.html

https://www.korallen-zucht.de/en/Sal...blue-39-W.html

Other companies do offer them with a similar spectrum.

You might go with 2 x NewGeneration, 1 x Superblue, 1 x Fiji Purple.

Today it is 10 days from the first exchange of zeolite. Can I switch to continuous flow? The corals are fine

Hello Lykan968, usually after the first replacement of ZeoVit material, ZeoBac x10 days, about two weeks later, if the coral is healthy, the reactor switches to continuous flow

Lets wait about 2 weeks after the first ZeoVit exchange like Jacky has mention before switching to continuous flow if all corals are doing fine.

I have to move my tank to the new bigger. The new tank has a content of 260 liters. The new tank will be in the old place. I can not do a 14 day cycle, and I have to just move it and replenish the fresh water. I plan to add new live stones. I used the live sand and I want to exchange it for Argonit. Would you advise me how to move to do nothing wrong? Do I have to leave the old sand?

Wet sand is not recommended for Zeo systems. It is recommended to use dry sand with some high quality live rock, which is very good

I would not use live sand also, the combination has caused cyano issues for many in the past. My recommendation is to use 50% of the old sand which you rinse in tempered saltwater from your tank to remove the sediments, mix it with the same kind of fresh sand to have a shallow sand bed. Make sure to soak the fresh sand very well in RO water to make sure it does not leach PO4 anymore.

Take all the water and the rocks from the old system, the rocks need also be cleaned in some tank water to remove the sediments. If you need additional rocks make sure to use rocks which where “cycled” already kept submerged at your dealers system but it should not be to old.

Move the old ZeoVit material and place it in a mash bag in the sump. Move the reactor and add fresh material in the necessary quantity. Run the reactor with continuous flow.

After the move dose:

2 drops ZeoBac / 100 liters daily for the first 10 days, than 1 drop 2 – 3 x weekly.
4 drops SpongePower / 100 liters daily for the first 10 days, than 1 drop every other day.
0.4 ml ZeoStart / 100 liters 2 x daily for the first 5 days, than 0.1 ml / 100 liters 2 x daily.

Directly after the move dose 4 ml Coral Snow / 100 liters daily for 3 days, than 1 ml / 100 liters 2 x weekly.

Run activated carbon as usual also from the beginning.

It is always risky to move a tank in this way if you do not have the possibility to cycle the new system first so I can not guaranty that you will have some issues with the animals but I keep my fingers crossed that all will work well.
