The rodi system is sound and functioning properly
It is filtered to 1 tds then it is sent to a dual DI filter where it is deionized and is 0 tds.
I change resin and filters regularly. Believe me it is better than fine.

Thank you, I don't have much better ideas, then what is the current "all complete doses", Zeo reactor flow

Try to clean the filter socks, is it a reason to filter the socks? What do you think

Chang socks about every 4 days and floss in cups every 2 days.
Reactor flow is at 700, a little high but on my reactor I only have 540, 700, 1080.

Zeostart 6ml 2x daily
Zeobak 2x weekly 6 drops ea
Coral snow 2x weekly 6ml
Zeofood 2x week 6 drops ea
Biomate 12 drops every other day
Coral vitalization 6 drops 2x weekly
Pohls extra 2 x weekly 5ml ea
Kaliumiodid-fluor 6 drops 2x weekly

Thank you, it is recommended to stop feeding the corals, while PO4 is elevated, ZeoFood stops adding. If the PO4 level is stable, you can add some coral foods later.

Start is usually 0.6 ml x2 per day, A dose of 2ml usually does not cause a rise in phosphorus

Try cleaning the ZeoVit material a few times, then drop Bac, start3 into the reactor inlet

Sorry, I still can't find why phosphorus is rising.

My calcium is at 430 which by all research is good. My magnesium is high 1440 and should be around 1250-1350. My dkh is low at 5.5.
I am dosing Kent dkh buffer to bring it to 8-9. I saw it rise to 6.5 from 5 in 2 days but tonight it’s 5.5.
I will test again in the morning and see if my dosing is doing anything....i’m Dosing as the bottle suggests.
Any other advice? I have stopped feeding corals.
I will also test pho’s in the morning if I get up in time!
Thanks

I do not have experience with the Kent product but basically I would recommend to use a buffer which does not contain additional trace elements.

In a SPS system it is necessary to constant supplement KH as it is the element which is consumed very quick. KH swings are not good so dosing constant small quantities to keep the KH stabile is necessary.

Here is a link to a reef calculator. I see Kent tech CB alk, not sure if that’s the one your using. Try testing 30 min after you add last dose of the day and then before you dose next day to see consumption. Yes you will have to dose everyday, preferably spread out several times per day. Once you hit target you will reduce to keep it stable. It’s a game. Shoot for 7-8, higher than 8 is not suggested with a low nutrient tank.

This morning 6.5 and ph stable at 8.2. Thanks for the calculator, I had this Kent pro buffer on hand but have since ordered a dry bicarbonate. This will do until my shipment gets here.
I appreciate all the help

Great. 7.0 is just fine, I keep mine at 7.8 just because I have large ph drop at night. If your good with 7.0 you can start dosing less and measure every day around the same time. I like to test before lights come on as that’s when corals are not using as much alk. Just need to find the dose that keeps it stable to that level. Some people get more complicated and stop dosing for 24 hours to measure consumption but I just kept tweaking to get a stable level. Once your new solution comes and get it hooked to a doser you may have to play again. Best to have doser dose every couple hours to keep alk as stable as possible. Sounds like water changes are taking care of calcium and mag for now.

Is it a zeovit sin to add GFO? I have been battling high Phosphates since the start of this journey.
Got it down to .02 but over the last 4-5 months it's been steady at .08 and the last 2 weeks .10, I use Biomate every-other day.
