Purpose: Replace channel material, good water quality

Tool: movable wrench x2, collar handle x1, Seal Tape

Step: Turn off the power, open the water outlet Vent, drain the water, replace the channel material, lock and wrap the Seal Tape, turn on the power, check the leak at each adapter (normal, no leakage, the machine works well), close Vent water, continuous discharge of wastewater for 1hr (waste pipe), completed

Note: Some materials are recommended to be replaced in half a year. Some materials are recommended to be replaced in 1~2 years. I choose to replace them all.

Hello Bugger, just want to get "cleaner" water, in fact, Ro water quality is not bad, I read my record, the material was replaced in August last year, there are some coins in the pocket, plus the first channel shows dirty, After thinking about it for about half a year, I will update them all early.

Small update

600L water volume

Zeo Bac 3 drops, 2 times a week
Zeo Sponge Power 3 drops 2 times a week
Zeo Start3 0.6ml x2 per day

Recently I realized that tank is in the third stage.
(Even if the nutrients are not added for 3 to 4 days, the coral appearance is still very good.
The excess sign is the darker tissue of the coral and is also the accumulation of brown mucus (bacteria), which may contain bubbles in the sand and rocks. I noticed it too late, this is Start3 overdose. But this is not a problem, I will overcome it
I am very happy that tank is in the third stage, which is undoubtedly the goal I hope.

I have a problem.
I will change start3 to 0.3ml x2 per day (manual dosing)
Can bac and Sponge power give me a dose?

Currently it is 3 drops, 2 times a week. When I add it, I find that the coral seems to be slightly darker, but this is not a serious problem.

Start3 I am currently in an overdose sign, I also observed that the coral seems to be a little darker too

G. Can you give me advice, thank you

Hello Jacky, if nutrients are stabile low you can try to reduce ZeoStart a little bit but I would recommend to do this in two steps over a week. Start with 2 x 0.4 ml for the first week and than reduce to 2 x 0.3 ml. While doing this keep a close eye on the PO4 level, it should not increase.

Continue dosing ZeoBac and SpongePower @ 3 drops 2 x weekly for each.

G.Alexander

Hello G.Alexander, need some help (algae nuisance)

Algae appearance, such as picture display, green, artificial way is easy to remove

Water quality: NP=0
Kh 7.5
Ca 420
Mg1280
K+400
Always and keep inline

Current total dose:
Start 0.3ml x2
Bac 3 drops, 2 times a week
Sponge power 3drops, 2 times a week
Zeo activated carbon is changed monthly
ZeoVit material is replaced in 8 weeks, and all the details such as flow rate are completely standard.

Maintenance / Handling:
Some functional animals have been added
Manually brushing algae/extracting algae
CoralSnow tried it, but it didn't seem to get better improvements.
Zym tried several times, but found that the coral tissue was slightly yellowish (PO4 is still 0), coral algae growth increased, the color changed slightly red (I learned that the nutrition temporarily increased, PO4 is still 0), I temporarily added
Change water 10% per week, Skimmer wet

Current status:
At present, most of the algae have been removed as much as possible (artificial way and completely possible output method)
It grows on live rock, there is no sand
There are some fragments, toothbrushes, etc. that can't be removed.

Coral health and growth and polyps grow well, coral color appearance is OK, just a little light (because I did not add nutrients)

I tried adding 1ml Xtra, and some of the debris algae seemed to be stronger the next day (so I only use the Zeo base product)

my question:
I can't provide nutrients to the coral. Even with a small dose of Xtra 1ml, I can only do all the work in a continuous cycle, and remove it as much as possible every day. At present, most of the algae have been deleted, leaving only some fragments.

Can you give me some advice?

Thank you

Hello ohashimz, thank you for your quick feedback

"bryopsis", is it the same name as the display image?

"bryopsis" I probably know a little about it, it is the loss of many people.

I think it should not be "bryopsis"

The appearance looks like a group of silk algae. When they grow up, it is easy to remove them with both hands.

That's very strange I am not aware of an algae that thrive in zero po4 no3 other than bryopsis..
Are you sure you have 0 np?
What kits do you use?
Have you cross correlated your kits with other kits?

Yes, NP=0, just tested again, like picture

NO3=0,Salifert,(Completely transparent)
PO4=0ppm,Hanna

The appearance of the coral does not lose color because no nutrients are added.

I remove organic matter as much as possible
So now I can only have more time and means to wait for them to completely disappear.With some functional snails

Picture bryopsis (on the Internet), algae in tank is not bryopsis (my tank)

It won't die off unless you use vibrant.

hydrogen peroxide is a reefers best friend when it comes to algae.

I would remove the rocks that are effected and spray 3% H202 that you can buy at any pharmecy. Be carefull not to spray the sps or it will kill your colonies. Leave out for five minutes and then rinse in a bucket of tank water then replace.

If you let it over grow your corals and do nothing soon you will lose all your corals.

If you can get vibrant I would use that and then after the algae dies away feed your tank as the product can make it very hard on sps that need nutrients.

Most herbivors will not eat hair algae

Hope is like this, in addition I noticed the addition of Bac, SP, the next day, it (algae) looks green, then manually remove it

meaning is:
When I manually remove the algae, the toothbrush is cleaned, and then some hard-to-erased pieces (algae) are left, which are improved.

The next day after adding Bac and Sp, those pieces (algae), from the withered green

From the FAQ:
Zeo's basic products add nutrients that don't help algae growth, and may switch to algae after consumption.

My dose:
Start 0.3ml x2
Bac 3 drops, 2 times a week
SP 3 drops, 2 times a week

This dose should not be a problem

Organic:
In general, excessive use of organic matter can lead to various adverse consequences, such as nuisance of algae, cyano, bacterial reproduction, etc.

Since the basal dose has been reduced by 1/2, most of the white bacterial membrane and brown membrane have disappeared. This is very good. Maybe I should try to restore 600L=6 drops/0.6ml dose?
